ARTICLE: ARSA files comments to FAA AC 145-11
The FAA issues Advisory Circulars to elucidate on how to comply with the Federal Aviation Regulations. In some ways the opening line of every AC (guidance on an acceptable means, but not the only means, of how…) is a reminder to the agency staff that frequently there are multiple methods to achieve the goal of compliance with the rules.
Issuance of a Draft AC is a request of industry for additional thoughts as to how to explain what needs be done to meet the rule. As highlighted above, ARSA has suggested both thematic and specific changes. The Maintenance Annex Guidance (MAG), ARSA notes, is the seminal document; so the final AC should include a more detailed description of the relationship between the MAG and the U.S.-European Community Agreement on Civil Aviation Safety. On a micro basis, ARSA redlined the AC to show very specific word changes that will make the document clearer- click here to see ARSA’s proposed changes.
ARSA knows its membership well and its suggestions do clarify how to comply. The FAA would benefit aviation safety by adopting the association’s well conceived comments.Share this article:
