Foreign Repair Station Provision Welcomed by the AIA


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Aerospace Industries Association (AIA)
: 24 March, 2010  (Company News)
The Head of the Aerospace Industry Association has made a statement of support of rhte FAA Re-authorisation bill recently passed by the Senate
Passage yesterday of a long-awaited FAA re-authorisation bill by the Senate is a good step forward to restoring program and budget stability to the nationís largest operational agency. The FAA is currently approaching its twelfth short-term extension since Vision 100 expired in September, 2007.

AIA is particularly pleased with the Senateís foreign repair station provision, which seeks to honour bilateral aviation safety agreements. AIA is also a strong supporter of the administrationís goal to accelerate NextGen implementation. Language in the Senate bill moves up expected Avionics equipage deadlines substantially. In this economy, we appreciate language in the bill that acknowledges the appropriateness of federal funding incentives for airborne air traffic management infrastructure.

The Senate and House-passed bills have significant differences. AIA looks forward to working with congressional conferees to ensure a final bill that continues to bring safe and efficient air travel to the general public.
