AIN Online    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In what the Aeronautical Repair Station Association is calling a major victory for the aviation industry, the FAA withdrew its "faulty legal interpretation" of maintenance duty time limitations prescribed in FAR 121.377. Specifically, the agency reversed course on its May 18, 2010 legal interpretation meant to clarify the application of the rest provisions and equivalency standards under the regulation. However, according to ARSA, the FAA erroneously concluded that the rule rigidly required one day off out of every seven days. More

Positive Publicity

You need the PPC and the PPC needs you!
Aeronautical Repair Station Association    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
ARSA's Positive Publicity Campaign is the aviation maintenance industry's chief advocate. The PPC tells of the maintenance industry's important role in ensuring a safe and efficient global civil aviation system, and it alerts lawmakers and other key audiences to facts about the industry's economic and employment benefits through important research projects.

However, repair stations remain a favorite target of those seeking to disparage the aviation system. Through the PPC, ARSA actively counters misinformed stories about the industry's safety record and regulatory compliance.

The PPC is a separate ARSA fund supported by leading aviation maintenance companies dedicated to improving the climate for repair stations. For the campaign to build upon is success, we need your involvement and support.
