Regulatory Update: The Latest in Aviation Regulations
Kickstart your day with the most up-to-date and relevant information in the world of aviation regulations at our Regulatory Rise & Shine. This session serves as a comprehensive source of regulatory news, information, and events that directly impact you, your customers, and your business. We will begin the session with a focus on the current regulatory agenda, discussing any recent changes or proposed amendments in aviation rules and how they might affect various stakeholders. We will examine these developments in the context of safety, operations, environmental sustainability, and the broader economic impact on the aviation industry.

Take the NEW Avionics Installation Certification Exam for FREE
Please note: If you are already an ASTM NCATT-certified Aircraft Electronics Technician (AET), you are eligible to take the NEW Aircraft Electronics Installation Technician (AEIT) endorsement exam for free at the AEA Regional. If you are not AET certified, you must pass that exam first. If you pass the AET certification exam at the AEA Regional, you can take the new installation endorsement exam along with other endorsements. All exams are free for attendees, courtesy of the AEA Educational Foundation. AET certification exams are normally $175, and AEIT endorsement exams are $150.

Did you know the FAA formally recognizes the AET certification as equivalent to formal training when showing eligibility for the issuance of a repairman certificate? Learn more at aea.net/aet. www.aea.net/aet
