January 20, 2014 - In her statement supporting new aircraft repair station security rule published by U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA), AIA President and CEO Marion C. Blakey commended actions taken to "balance the requirements to bolster security while also opening up new maintenance and repair options for airlines and industry." This is in light of, according to Blakey, a "log jam" which prevented 80+ repair stations from receiving certification review by FAA.

Statement by Aerospace Industries Association President and CEO Marion C. Blakey supporting new aircraft repair station security rule published by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

Arlington, Va. – Today’s release of new regulations outlining security improvements for domestic and foreign repair stations marks the end of a prohibition on the approval of new repair stations by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).   The Aerospace Industries Association is pleased that the U.S. aviation industry once again will be able to resume normal operations and be competitive globally.

The regulations will break a log jam that had prevented more than 80 repair stations from receiving certification review by FAA.  Congress had prohibited the certification of new foreign repair stations until issuance of this rule by TSA.

We commend the government’s actions to balance the requirements to bolster security while also opening up new maintenance and repair options for airlines and industry.
