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)
