  • ARSA Previews TSA Repair Station Security Comments
    Posted by Sean Broderick 7:27 PM on Feb 13, 2010

    The extended comment period on TSA's repair station security draft rule closes Feb. 19. ARSA is still putting the spit-shine on its final comments, but has posted a draft version of its submission so that other commenters can get an idea of what the repair station industry's main advocate is going to tell TSA.

    In sum, says ARSA: The final rule should exclude repair stations that don't work on complete aircraft or are not located at commercial airports. (That's most of the 5,000-plus U.S. certificated shops, ARSA notes.)

    For the remaining repair stations, TSA should go back to the drawing board with a new proposed rule that takes the industry's comments into account.

    ARSA's draft comments walk through the original NPRM and suggest alternative language.
