We are just over two months away from the 2014 MARPA Conference! MARPA is thrilled to see that PMA manufacturers, air carriers, and regulators from all over the world are joining us this year in Las Vegas. Part of what makes the annual MARPA Conference an important event to attend is hearing from leaders in our industry first-hand.
This year, Daisuke Umezawa, Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB)’s Director, Airworthiness Standards and International Affairs Office Airworthiness Division, will be joining us to discuss Japan’s consideration of establishing a Japanese PMA framework, and the possibility of working with FAA regulators to accept JPMA articles. This is a very exciting prospect for the future of PMA, and we think you’ll enjoy hearing his insights regarding possible developments.
At the invitation of MARPA member Jay Kato, MARPA visited Japan to attend the 2013 Aerospace Industry Exhibition Tokyo (ASET 2013). This visit was an opportunity to introduce ASET 2013 attendees to information about the PMA marketplace and about our membership. Many Japanese companies are very interested in the potential offered by PMA, and bring new opportunities as potential partners and suppliers. Mr. Umezawa visiting our event is an excellent chance to continue to both learn about and to share with the JCAB.
We’ve got an exciting line-up of keynote and other speakers on the agenda, and you will hear more in the weeks ahead. You can find the Conference agenda and other information on our website.
We hope to see you in Las Vegas this October. Register today!
