ARSA Condemns FAA AD Proposal

The Aeronautical Repair Station (ARSA) has called on the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to withdraw a proposed Airworthiness Directive (AD) because of a “disregard of basic requirements for promulgating a safety regulation”. ARSA said the FAA had failed to comply with congressional mandates and internal guidelines in the proposed AD, which requires the inspection and replacement of cylinders used on certain engines manufactured by Continental Motors. “The agency’s failure to provide objective, substantiated engineering data and to complete an accurate analysis regarding the economic impact of the AD merits the immediate withdrawal of the proposal,” said Daniel Fisher, VP legislative affairs, ARSA.
