Aircraft Maintenance and System Technology Committee
The Aircraft Maintenance and Systems Technology Committee promotes the interests of the association’s members relative to aviation maintenance, repair stations and aviation technology.
The committee works in a cooperative and constructive manner with Congress and the Federal Aviation Administration in the monitoring and promulgation of regulatory and legislative language and procedures affecting aviation maintenance and operations. To do this, the committee studies and recommends policy concerning existing and proposed aircraft maintenance regulations and legislation, and participates in sessions with appropriate legislative and regulatory agencies to express the needs and views of the association’s members. At the same time, the committee recommends and arranges programs on issues pertinent to its objectives to be included at association meetings and the annual convention.
Staff support is provided by the committee to assist in the role of policy development, to conduct research, maintain contact with appropriate legislative and regulatory entities, to develop responses to legislative and regulatory proposals and provide administrative support.
Current issues of committee involvement include Part 145 compliance, DRVSM, national air tour safety standards (NPRM), the Part 135 rewrite, Draft AC 147, Draft AC 43-FAB, recommendations for the NATA annual maintenance award and ELTs.
