Criminal case against repair station is a reminder that audits of procedures, practices and standards are essential
JDA Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The FAA has not the resources to be present at every facility of every entity to which it provides a certificate to operate or perform repairs to aircraft.

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.
