The new year is already shaping up to be an important one for the business aviation industry. Lawmakers have a March 31 deadline to reauthorize the FAA and proposals for creating a privatized ATC funded through user fees remain front and center. “The whole idea of privatization is a major concern, but it has a lot of momentum right now,” noted NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. “It’s something that our community is going to need to really step forward and express our views on.
