ARSA at MRO Americas – Always Among Friends

On April 24, Vice President of Communications Brett Levanto stopped in Orlando for a discussion with Aviation Week’s Commercial Aviation Forecast Advisory Board. At the meeting, held at the Orange County Convention Center during the run-up to MRO Americas, Levanto briefed board members on the legislative, regulatory and operational issues that must be faced by the repair station community.

The presentation covered a list of topics familiar to ARSA members, each of which ties together the American political/regulatory environment with the international health of the aviation industry:

(1) The Trump administration’s attempts to “deconstruct the administrative state.
(2) Legislative efforts to curb the powers of the executive branch (i.e., regulators).
(3) The fresh debate on reauthorizing the FAA.
(4) Efforts to mandate drug & alcohol testing requirements at “foreign” repair stations.
(5) The role of ARAC in regulatory reform.
(6) Aligning bilateral agreements in pursuit of true – and elusive – reciprocal acceptance.
(7) Safety and compliance-focused initiatives from global regulators.
(8) Data collection tools.
(9) The regulatory impacts of new technologies.
(10) The aviation workforce crisis.

Levanto also explored the exhibition floor as static displays were finished. In every corner of the space, the association’s members and allies were well represented. If walking the floor at MRO is a proxy for traveling the maintenance world, then ARSA is always among friends…these organizations carry the flag on behalf of all members as the association works for them.
