Helicopter Association International (HAI) has joined with 130 other general aviation (GA) organizations in a letter to Congress opposing House Bill 2997, the 21st Century AIRR Act.
HAI President and CEO Matt Zuccaro stressed the effects that privatization could have on U.S. aviation.
“Turning ATC over to a monopoly could have far-reaching impacts on general aviation, an industry that generates more than $219 billion in total economic output, supports 1.1 million jobs, and includes a network of hundreds of airports and heliports connecting many rural communities and businesses.”
