NACA Opposes Repair Station Bill
Nov. 18, 2019: The National Air Carrier Association and its aviation industry counterparts issued a joint letter opposing efforts by the Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Peter DeFazio, to place onerous and unnecessary restrictions on U.S. airline use of foreign maintenance facilities. We strongly believe “The Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act” would threaten U.S. jobs, hurt small businesses, disrupt international air travel and weaken the competitiveness of the U.S. aviation industry. In addition to placing U.S. mandates on foreign countries, the bill mandates onerous new record keeping and reporting requirements that do not facilitate greater aviation safety.
The other aviation associations joining this letter include: Aeronautical Repair Station Association, Aerospace Industries Association, Aircraft Electronics Association, Airlines for America, Aviation Suppliers Association, Cargo Airline Association, General Aviation Manufacturers Association, International Air Transport Association, Modification and Replacement Parts Association and Regional Airline Association.
