Tell Government Officials That The Latest Iteration Of The New Rule Is Still Seriously Flawed
Representatives of the aviation industry met with FAA and Small Business Administration officials November 5th for a discussion of the proposed re-write of the FAA's rules governing Part 145 repair stations. The deadline for comments on the proposed new rules is November 19.
Among the changes, outlined in a presentation by FAA Repair Station Branch representative John Goodwin, is the creation of a new "component" rating which would include the previous "radio," "instrument," and "accessory" ratings ... making no distinction between the various components. It would also modify the "airframe" category to absorb three sections for Part 23 & 27, Part 25 & 29, and create an umbrella category for other types of aircraft. It would further expand the engine categories to include APUs.
In a report appearing on HAI's rotor.com, Aeronautical Repair Station Association Executive Director Sarah MacLeod said that the FAA has been trying to revise Part 145 regulations since the 1980's, and that "each iteration of the proposed rule has been an improvement, but even the latest falls far short."
