Is the PMA Debate Over? Kate Schaefer, Senior Vice President—Sales & Marketing, HEICO Aerospace Parts Group
[Presentation Abstract] In 2008, the FAA RAFT Report and SAIB sent a strong message to the industry establishing the validity of PMA Parts. There is an increasing need for airlines to find more ways to reduce costs, and most of the world’s largest airlines have embraced PMA Parts. Despite the seemingly positive future of PMA, are there still hold-outs in the PMA Legitimacy Debate? Are there any regions of the world yet to embrace PMA? Can we expect to see the leasing community react differently in the face of growing demand?

Exporting Aircraft Parts Jason Dickstein, President, Washington Aviation Group, P.C.
[Presentation Abstract] In 2008, the State Department and Commerce Department issued ‘dueling interpretations’ on dual use parts. With increased PMA usage by the US Air Force, products that were not dual-use five years ago are becoming dual use through Air Force adoption. This becomes a serious issue when considering whether an export license may be necessary for your export. Mr. Dickstein will discuss the recent export guidance, and how these interpretations will affect both domestic and export business for PMA holders.
