GAMA welcomed the European Parliament Transport & Tourism Committee’s vote yesterday to oppose “damaging resource cuts” to the EASA that could have affected the agency’s ability to certify new aviation products. “The agency’s ability to deal with new certification and validation requests in a timely manner is vital. This ensures that newer, safer products…reach the market without unnecessary delays,” GAMA said. The EASA charges the manufacturing industry fees to cover the cost of certification and validation activities, so “any cuts in this area would seem unjustified and counterproductive,” GAMA concluded.
