ARSA educates Congress on economic impact of MRO industry

The Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA told Congress in a letter about the significant economic impact the aviation maintenance industry has in communities throughout the country and urged lawmakers to keep the sector's contributions and safety record in mind when considering legislative proposals.

The letter highlights a new report commissioned by ARSA, "Global MRO Market Economic Assessment," which detailed the economic impact and market breakdown of the aviation Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul industry. Specifically, the study determined that the MRO industry has a direct and indirect impact of $47 billion on the U.S. economy and employs 306,000 U.S. workers, adding 30,000 new jobs since 2009.

"The report makes clear that although maintenance may be the least visible segment of the aviation industry, in addition to helping U.S. airlines become safer and more competitive, repair stations are significant economic contributors throughout the country. Unfortunately, the industry's economic impact and jobs are directly threatened by policies coming out of Washington, including the current ban on foreign repair station certificates and indiscriminate cuts to FAA funding," ARSA Vice President of Legislative Affairs Daniel Fisher said.
