Dear MARPA Members:
MARPA will be “meeting” with the Engine and Propeller Directorate via a telephone conference on August 7, 2014 at 13:00 Eastern Time. Association members are invited to participate. If you are a MARPA member and would like to participate, please contact Katt Brigham by email or by phone!
We will be discussing the Engine and Propeller Directorate’s future work plan for policy guidance affecting PMAs, and will also receive status updates on current projects. MARPA plans to share trends in the industry that could require FAA attention, as well as information on “lessons learned” in the realm of Continued Operational Safety (COS).
This informal working meeting is part of a series of meetings between MARPA and the FAA that are intended to promote communication in an effort to manage safety in a proactive, efficient, effective manner. It is an excellent opportunity to let the Engine and Propeller Directorate know whether their existing policy is effective in supporting safety. Nothing said by the FAA is intended to bind the FAA to any particular course of action. Participants are asked to respect the FAA’s standards reflecting ex parte communication.
