Air Agency Certificate Law and Legal Definition

An air agency certificate refers to an authorization to perform certain aircraft repair services. The administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration issues air agency certificates. [49 USCS § 44702].

Under the regulations of the Civil Aeronautics Administration, not more than one air agency certificate could be issued for the same aeronautical facilities and equipment. [Edgerton v. United States, 127 Ct. Cl. 515, 520 (Ct. Cl. 1954)].

An air agency certificate authorizes a repair station to perform maintenance on airplanes and airplane parts. Aircraft repair stations are required to certify the airworthiness of the parts on which they have performed maintenance. [United States v. Evaschuck, 65 F. Supp. 2d 1360, 1363 (D. Fla. 1999)
