FAA bill will hurt U.S. exports, ARSA warns ITC
Legislation pending on Capitol Hill threatens the United States' $2.4 billion positive balance of trade in the aviation maintenance services market, a leading aviation industry group recently told the International Trade Commission (ITC).
Testifying at an ITC hearing on export activities by small and medium-size companies, Christian A. Klein, executive vice president of the Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA), warned that Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization legislation passed by the House of Representatives and being debated by the Senate would lead to the collapse of international agreements that allow U.S. aviation companies to serve foreign customers.
