There is a critical issue that all of aviation needs to know about, be informed about and get involved in... the FAA's recent attempt to rewrite the part 145 regs that oversee the industry's Repair Stations. To help understand the scope of the Federal Aviation Administration's proposed significant and potentially damaging rewrite of Part 145, the Aircraft Electronics Association provided the expertise of their Ric Peri (Vice President of Government & Industry Affairs), to Aero-TV during the busy days of Oshkosh 2012.
Ric noted that just a few weeks ago, the FAA proposed a significant rewrite of the repair station regulations without a clear layout of who may accomplish what maintenance. The proposal eliminates many of the currently utilized opportunities for mobile maintenance operations. In addition, it appears that a current radio-rated repair station with a limited airframe rating would, under this proposal, need to hold two additional airframe ratings just to retain the opportunities that it currently has. Most disappointing of all is the proposal to reverse many of the hard-fought provisions that were gained in previous rulemaking efforts.
AEA has taken a strong and critical stand on this issue and as you listen to Ric has to say, see for yourself why this issue is of such critical importance to the aviation world...
