Is the foreign repair station ban impacting your company?
from Aeronautical Repair Station Association
The Aeronautical Repair Station Association has launched a new survey to measure the impact of the ban on new foreign repair station certificates. Congress prohibited the Federal Aviation Administration from acting on foreign repair station certificate applications submitted after Aug. 3, 2008 because the Transportation Security Administration had not finalized repair station security rules. The ban is an unprecedented example of punishing industry for a federal agency's inaction. U.S. aviation companies are barred from tapping into rapidly expanding overseas markets, which is hindering job creation and growth at home.
