There have been two AEI Executive Board (EB) meetings since the Congress. We continue to deal with the Ombudsman ruling and EASA’s over edited response to the original request for information.
There is concern over EASA’s interpretation of Certified Release to Service (CRS) with some in the industry trying to push the idea that it is simply an administrative function. AEI is standing firm that a CRS requires certificated personnel directly involved in the maintenance performed.
Mr. Tord Holen, AEI Technical Affairs Chairman, has resigned his position after accepting a position with the Norwegian NAA. The Executive Board is now looking for nominations to fill this position. Our thanks to Tord for his hard work and years of dedication to AEI.
The new AEI confidential occurrence reporting system, which was presented at the 2014 Congress, is now up and running. The system is not meant to replace an existing system, but to supplement existing systems or provide a means of reporting to those who don’t have a reporting system. Look for the link on the right side of the AEI website.
AEI, Secretary Americas
