DEMYSTIFYING THE FAA FOR ENTREPRENEURS
Are you an inventor always coming up with something new; the vendor marketing the next great invention; the customer who designed a solution but doesn’t know the next step?
For years, the association has helped startup
manufacturers navigate the complex world of aviation
regulations through on-demand, one-off requests. As these
requests have grown in frequency, the AEA has strategically
developed a structured forum to offer greater assistance
to these startup companies. To achieve the goals of the
AEA Technology Incubator, the association has organized
a one-day event scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 16, at its
international headquarters in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
The AEA is restricting attendance to startups. To attend
this forum, the manufacturer must not hold an FAA production approval; however, it may hold a NORSEE
approval. This is a forum for startup companies or new
entrants into the certified aircraft industry. This is not a
forum for established manufacturers; that is the quarterly
Due to space limitations, attending companies are limited to two participants.
The AEA Technology Incubator is designed to demystify
the path forward to producing parts for certified aircraft with
a focus on producing these parts under the FAA oversight.
The best and most successful way to demystify anything
in aviation is to open the path for communication. The
AEA Technology Incubator will include presentations and
discussions focused on understanding the FAA regulatory
structure, as well as the Part 23 and production regulations,
guidance and policies. In addition, the AEA Technology
Incubator will offer ample opportunity to interact with the
association staff, FAA personnel and other attendees.
The goal of the AEA Technology Incubator is simple and straightforward:
Encourage new technologies.
Encourage the promotion of safety-enhancing technologies.
Facilitate and encourage the communications between new aviation entrants and the FAA.
