SBA Repair Station Meeting Postponed!

The Small Business Administration’s small business roundtable to discuss the FAA’s proposed Aviation Repair Station rule has been postponed due to the severe weather effects of Hurricane Sandy.  The meeting will be rescheduled in the next couple of days.

The FAA’s proposed rule would revise the system of ratings, repair station certification requirements, the regulations on repair stations providing maintenance for air carriers, and even the way that repair stations record maintenance.  The rule is expected to have a secondary affect on repair station customers and business partners, including PMA manufacturers.

The SBA has recognized the potential effects of the rule changes on small businesses and originally had scheduled a roundtable meeting for tomorrow to discuss the changes. Typically, the SBA will file comments to address industry concerns.  The roundtable is an excellent opportunity to make your concerns heard.  MARPA also plans to file comments on the Aviation Repair Station rule.

The MARPA blog has previously addressed the proposed rule and will post an update when the SBA meeting is rescheduled.  Those interested in attending the rescheduled roundtable should RSVP to Bruce Lundgren via email.  A conference call option is usually available upon request.  If you wish to dial in, contact Bruce Lundgren in advance so that SBA can make the appropriate arrangements (but wait until after the Hurricane has passed and the Federal Government is open again).
