The Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) is seeking a broad response from the aircraft maintenance community—including non-member maintenance providers—to a survey that will help shape its lobbying priorities in Congress and advocate for the industry in general with regulators around the world. Results of the survey also will help illustrate more expansively what is currently happening within the maintenance industry, according to ARSA.
With 23 questions, the survey is expected to take 15 minutes and responses are kept confidential. A company name is only required for data-management purposes, the association said. As “Part II” of its annual industry survey of members, it also focuses on the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on repair shops, as well as recovery planning for the maintenance industry.
ARSA said the original survey for 2020 that closed in early March offered the “image…of a world long since left behind.”
