Quick Question: The Costs of ICA

Since ARSA’s inception, it has worked to ensure availability of basic maintenance information. It has filed multiple complaints with the FAA and EASA, developed industry- wide consensus on reasonable policy standards, sought external guidance, commented on agency actions, produced training and other resources and even sought Supreme Court intervention.

The work continues to make instructions for continued airworthiness (ICA) “available to any other person required…to comply with any of the terms of those instructions.”

On Dec. 1, 2017 a U.S. court ruled in a case related to 14 CFR § 21.50’s requirements that it is totally within the FAA’s discretion if and how it enforces its own rules. ARSA is developing a strategy to press the issue further on behalf of certificate holders and is gathering data regarding restrictions on ICA.
