The AEA has negotiated a contract to bring all of the ASTM aviation standards to the repair station members that need the standards for the continuing airworthiness of the general aviation fleet from light-sport aircraft to the new Part 23 as well as the foundational maintenance of electrical wire interconnect systems for the legacy GA fleet. It’s estimated that the typical repair station uses six ASTM standards during the year. The standards range from $50 for the Electrical Load Analysis to $103 for the Standard Practice for Design, Alteration and Certification of aircraft wiring systems. The annual cost savings is around $350 a year for AEA members.
