The voice of the general aviation aircraft electronics industry.
Founded in 1957, the Aircraft Electronics Association represents nearly 1,300 member companies in more than 40 countries, including government-certified international repair stations specializing in maintenance, repair and installation of avionics and electronic systems in general aviation aircraft.
On Sept. 11-13, 2019, the Aircraft Electronics Association hosted the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee that has been tasked by the Federal Aviation Administration to review and reconcile FAA repair station regulations and guidance.
All attendees at the upcoming AEA Connect Conferences in Kansas City (Oct. 2-3) and Daytona Beach (Nov. 4-5) will have the opportunity to take the Aircraft Electronics Technician certification and endorsement exams free of charge, a $175 value, courtesy of the AEA Educational Foundation.
Understanding the regulations of the repair station is only part of the equation. Like pieces of a puzzle, each regulation is needed to fit together in order to fully view the repair station’s requirements.
In an effort to promote consistency and standardization, the AEA petitioned the FAA for acceptance of the ASTM standard as an acceptable means of compliance. As an FAA-recognized AMC, this document is essentially the same as if it was published as an advisory circular.
