The association also balks at the FAA’s proposal to place a higher “safety value” on new type certificates or modifications that would be incorporated into a production line.

Such logic means that identical proposals from a manufacturer and independent supplier—such as a parts manufacturer—to supply product to the aftermarket would not be treated equally, simply because the OEM can also work the upgrade into its production line. 

“This places the independent competitor at an unfair disadvantage (having to wait longer for resources), that is not warranted by any safety rationale,” the industry group argues.
