AEA’s Comparative Analysis of the FAA’s Proposed Changes to Part 145 Rewrite

To help understand the scope of the Federal Aviation Administration’s proposed significant and potentially damaging rewrite of Part 145, the Aircraft Electronics Association has published a comparative analysis of the proposed changes to current regulatory language.

The yellow highlighted portions of the comparative analysis indicate the distinct differences between the proposed changes and current regulatory language.
Earlier this month, the FAA proposed a significant rewrite of the repair station regulations without a clear layout of who may acomplish what maintenance. The proposal eliminates many of the currently utilized opportunities for mobile maintenance operations. In addition, it appears that a current radio-rated repair station with a limited airframe rating would, under this proposal, need to hold two additional airframe ratings just to retain the opportunities that it currently has. Most disappointing of all is the proposal to reverse many of the hard-fought provisions that were gained in previous rulemaking efforts. (Click here to read the Repair Station NPRM)
