Yesterday, National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) President and CEO Ed Bolen testified before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. He warned of the potentially harmful consequences inherent in the creation of a privatized air traffic control (ATC) system, funded by user fees, as proposed in H.R. 4441, a bill to reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Below the video features Bolen's opening statement.
With the issue moving full steam ahead, NBAA also issued a press release citing some of the points Bolen made in his testimony. The WAA in conjunction with NBAA is encouraging those in the business aviation community to contact their members of Congress, and make their voices heard against ATC privatization funded by user fees.
