PAMA has gone live with its new website PAMA.org!
Although several components are still under construction the site PAMA.org is now live. As some may already have learned PAMA's website had been hacked by one or many malicious sources. No data was accessed due to security measures. But what they did shut the site down. The hackers flooded the site with data in every place possible to put in comments. Forums, articles and log in information was all flooded. This cause the host server to go over capacity. This caused a systematic shut down of pages and components of the site. Many members are overdue for renewal because of this. The site programming has been upgraded to a more friendly and secure Word Press environment. This will carry PAMA on for many more years.

We thank all of you for your patience over this time and we will be in touch with expired members soon. We welcome any comments and suggestions on the new site!

Sincerely,
Dale Forton
PAMA President


TSA releases long-overdue repair station security rule
Aviation Week
A decade after Congress mandated that the Transportation Security Administration adopt new repair station security regions, the agency is finally issuing the rule and effectively lifting a ban on certification of new foreign repair stations. Congress, frustrated with TSA's inaction on the issue, banned FAA from certifying new foreign repair stations until the final rule was issued. That ban had been in place for more than five years, and the number of repair stations awaiting FAA certification had grown to more than 90.
