Washington, DC – Today, the Alliance for Aviation Across America released the following statement in response to news that the U. S. Senate this afternoon passed a four-year Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization bill. The House of Representatives approved the measure on Friday of last week:
“The Alliance commends lawmakers for passing a long-term FAA Reauthorization bill, which will provide critically-needed funding for modernization of our air traffic control system and facilitate long-term airport improvement projects that will help to keep air travelers flying safely. These priorities will also help to support small towns and rural communities around the country that depend on our nation’s system of airports for a host of important resources and services, including commerce, medical care, law enforcement and disaster relief. We look forward to working with Members of Congress on this and other priorities important to the businesses and communities that depend on general aviation and our nation’s smaller airports. “
Formed in 2007, the Alliance for Aviation Across America is a non-profit, non-partisan coalition of over 5,700 individuals representing businesses, agricultural groups, FBO’s, small airports, elected officials, charitable organizations, and leading business and aviation groups that support the interest of the general aviation community across various public policy issues.
