The security rule toll
Aviation Week    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For months the Transportation Security Administration's final rulemaking to impose new security rules for repair stations in the U.S. and abroad has appeared imminent.

The repair station industry was hopeful last spring that a long-awaited final rule might find its way to the Office of Management and Budget to begin a 90-day review process, considered the last step before release to the public. But by late fall, the final rule, which is now seven years past a congressionally set deadline, still had not been released from the agency. And, the delays in its release are taking a toll on industry. More

Positive Publicity

You Need the PPC and the PPC Needs You!
Aeronautical Repair Station Association    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
ARSA's Positive Publicity Campaign is the aviation maintenance industry's chief advocate. The PPC tells of the maintenance industry's important role in ensuring a safe and efficient global civil aviation system, and it alerts lawmakers and other key audiences to facts about the industry's economic and employment benefits through important research projects.

However, repair stations remain a favorite target of those seeking to disparage the aviation system. Through the PPC, ARSA actively counters misinformed stories about the industry's safety record and regulatory compliance.

The PPC is a separate ARSA fund supported by leading aviation maintenance companies dedicated to improving the climate for repair stations. For the campaign to build upon is success, we need your involvement and support.
