Quick Question – Small Business Connections

ARSA is leading a coalition of industry organizations and companies to oppose the the Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act (H.R. 5119). If the bill becomes law, U.S. repair stations with foreign approvals and their employees would almost certainly be targets of the retaliation by foreign authorities. U.S. commercial and general aviation operations outside the country would be disrupted because of a shortage – or complete lack of – FAA certificated maintenance facilities in destination countries. And U.S. manufacturers seeking to provide product support in growing foreign markets would be prevented from obtaining FAA certification at those overseas facilities.

Opponents of repair stations – like those responsible for this bill – claim they “steal jobs,” when in reality contract maintenance providers employ 188,000 Americans and generate $25 billion in annual economic activity in the United States. To be able to expand that statement of impact to business partners and service providers would be very effective.
