ARTICLE: ARSA seeks MMI clarification
ARSA, ever the optimistic organization, has requested that the FAA clarify what is meant by the term “modified maintenance instructions” under EASA part 145.A.45(d) under the Agreement between the United States of America and the European Community on Cooperation in the Regulation of Civil Aviation Safety. ARSA’s request is on behalf of its European Members.
The FAA historically has been reluctant to put in writing what it means by the words found in an FAR. Their lack of comfort to be pinned down by what is meant by a regulation is that the FAA takes years to issue an interpretation. Now they are being requested to clarify what is meant by an ESA rule under a US-EC agreement.
Hopefully, this prognosis is wrong, but this Acting Administrator’s successor’s successor will be confirmed before a clarification is issued.Share this article:
