What is a PMA?

A Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) is an FAA design and production approval for aircraft parts. It is only issued after the FAA has (1) reviewed the design of the part to assure that it is safe and meets the requirements of the FAA regulations and (2) reviewed the production quality system to make sure that there is a system in place to verify that each part that is manufactured meets the FAA-approved design.
