Have You Done Your Part?

There is Too Much at Stake…Another FAA extension gives repair stations more time to ensure Congress doesn’t throw the aviation maintenance industry under the bus.

Many of you have participated in our grassroots effort targeting Senate conferees. If you haven’t done so, please participate. For those that did send letters to their senators, now is the time to do it again. It is essential they hear from you (and continue to do so) about why the House language relating to noncertificated maintenance and foreign repair stations is preferable to the Senate’s.

For those in California, Texas, Florida and Washington, we are targeting Senators Boxer, Hutchison, Nelson, and Cantwell because they have been appointed to serve on the conference committee as top negotiators for a final FAA bill. However, everyone should participate by contacting their senators using the instructions below.

If you have yet to participate, take action now!

ARSA has made it easy to weigh-in with your senators. Please, invest ten minutes of your time for the future of your industry.
