Irked by the Foreign Repair Station Ban?
ARSA continues to work behind the scenes with the aviation maintenance industry's strongest allies on Capitol Hill to introduce legislation to lift the ban on Federal Aviation Administration foreign repair station certifications. The association has maintained for years that Congress should fix the problem it created when, in 2007, it decided to prevent the FAA from issuing new foreign repair station certificates because the Transportation Security Administration couldn't finalize security rules. In mid-March, it looked like progress was being made when the Department of Homeland Security sent the rule to the Office of Management & Budget for final review. Unfortunately, all indications are that OMB has no desire to complete the rulemaking anytime soon. In other words, industry continues to be penalized by congressional micromanagement and agency inaction.

Aftermarket Parts Market Consolidation Likely To Increase
Aviation Week
The long-predicted consolidation of the aviation used-parts business appears to be finally happening, or at least accelerating significantly. The case for consolidating aircraft aftermarkets, both in repair work and in supply chain provision, always has been strong. The logic is that bigger, more diversified companies can provide more comprehensive services to airlines that want to outsource functions that others can expedite more efficiently.
