The Aviation Suppliers Association reported in its latest The Update Report that the Federal Aviation Administration plans to close its suspected unapproved parts office this summer. Don't worry: The FAA isn't abandoning the program but rather distributing the work to other FAA offices.
"In conjunction with this realignment, the FAA plans to rewrite Advisory Circular 21-29 (Detecting and Reporting Unapproved Parts," wrote ASA in The Update.
In related news, the suppliers association is moving its own office on June 16 to 2233 Wisconsin Ave., NW, Suite 503, Washington DC 2007. --Lee Ann Tegtmeier
