The coming year will be critical for the aviation industry. After years of decline in demand for air travel and freight, key changes are needed to help the industry to recover from several challenging years. At this year’s highly-anticipated Aviation Summit, The US Chamber of Commerce and NCF will examine the most important factors in the industry’s turnaround. From the need for long-term FAA reauthorization to the impact increasingly aggressive regulations play on the industry’s health, speakers will discuss what policies are needed to support industry growth. Leaders from the freight, commercial, and business aviation sectors will address the most important factors in supporting an industry turnaround. What policy priorities are needed to drive industry growth, and how can policymakers support the industry and improve our competitiveness in the global marketplace?
