Compares Differences Between NPRM And Current Regulations
As the first step in keeping its members and other interested parties informed about the FAA's proposed changes in Part 145 of the FARs, the Aircraft Electronics Association has published a comparative analysis of the proposed changes to current regulatory language.
The yellow highlighted portions of the comparative analysis indicate the distinct differences between the proposed changes and current regulatory language.
Earlier this month, 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. Comments are due no later than Aug. 20, 2012.
Since comments are due before the start of the AEA domestic Regional Meetings, the Association will be leveraging its normal communication mediums, as well as Web-based sessions. AEA suggest that its membership should watch the AEA Wired e-newsletter and the AEA website for more communications and upcoming schedules.
