A Guide to Commenting on the Repair Station Rule

Don’t forget that the deadline for commenting on the FAA proposed rule concerning repair stations is approaching quickly.

This rule will likely affect most ASA members, whether directly (because the member is also a repair station) or indirectly (affecting repair station customers or affecting repair stations that the member uses as repair vendors).

AEA has just published an article that I wrote about why the industry should comment on the proposed rule, and how to go about commenting.  The article can be found online.

After explaining why and how to comment, the article examines some of the issues rasied by the rule, and offers a radical alternative to ratings … the elimination of the ratings system in favor of reliance on the already-common capabilties list system.  The article examines several other issues raised by the proposal.

This is a rule on which every member of the industry should file comments.  Comments on the proposed rule are due to the FAA by November 19, and should reference dockste number FAA-2006-26408.  Click here to comment!
