The Global Aircraft Safety Improvement Act Returns Offshored Jobs to the US
The bipartisan Global Aircraft Safety Improvement Act (H.R. 7321, Formerly known as the 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 Global Aircraft Safety Improvement Act!
