All the stakeholders in this economic sector understand the imperative need for passengers to be and feel as safe as possible when boarding an aircraft. Historically, around the world, regulatory agencies, such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have been established to oversee and regulate organizations involved with all the aspects and facets associated with flight safety. One of the most important, influential and visible stakeholders, involved in flight safety, are the so called "repair stations." continue
