The Bipartisan Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act
Apr 15, 2022

Brothers and Sisters

We need your help getting this done,

The bipartisan Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act raises safety standards for U.S.-flagged aircraft maintained abroad to bring them in line with domestically maintained aircraft. This will not only better ensure the safety and security of frontline aviation workers and the flying public, but also deter offshoring of aircraft maintenance. 

The legislation would address five regulatory gaps that allow a lower safety standard for aircraft maintenance and incentivize airlines to offshore this work: 

  • Drug and alcohol testing for safety sensitive personnel
  • Background checks for workers at maintenance facilities
  • Security threat assessments for these facilities
  • Unannounced inspections for maintenance operations
  • Minimum qualifications for aircraft mechanics

Do you support returning offshored jobs to the U.S.? Then write a letter to your Congressmember, asking them to support the Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act!
