MARPA presented this week at the annual meeting of the Latin American and Caribbean air carriers, known as CCMA. The presentation addressed the advantages provided by PMA parts and strategies for overcoming the legal and technical issues facing a Latin American air carrier seeking to use PMA parts for the first time. The response from from the air carriers was overwhelmingly positive!
The event was hosted by Avianca, the Colombian carrier. Avianca’s Vice President of Maintenance, Miguel Montoya, announced that one of his top goals was to identify and begin using more PMA parts and DER repairs to provide cost-effective solutions that will support Avianca’s comitment to safety.
During the Conference, MARPA President Jason Dickstein spoke with several other air carriers who all expressed interest in PMA parts.
