"Today, we are embroiled in a critical regulatory issue (FAA's Part 145 NPRM)... At first glance, the AEA's associate members, made up of manufacturers and distributors, might look at the regulatory updates and quickly conclude the NPRM only impacts repair stations and not the associate members. However, I can assure you that doing so is a very bad assumption."
