NBAA officials have been crossing the country in recent months, meeting with regional groups and business aviation advocates to discuss concerns about proposals to privatize the ATC system. The latest meeting to help galvanize stakeholder opposition to the Trump administration’s proposal to hand over control of the ATC system to the major airlines will be held in St. Louis, MO on Friday, June 9.

The event is sponsored by the Greater St. Louis Business Aviation Association (GSLBAA).

Dick Doubrava, NBAA’s vice president of government affairs, will be one of the featured speakers on the panel of aviation legislative experts. Other panelists include Scott Verstandig, senior director of legislative affairs, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association; Rebecca Mulholland, director of legislative affairs, National Air Transportation Association; and Sean Elliott, vice president, advocacy and safety, Experimental Aviation Association.

The speakers will present attendees with information on the many issues and concerns that this year’s FAA reauthorization process presents general aviation. There will be time for discussion and questions.

“GLSBAA is to be commended for providing a forum for discussion of this critically important issue to business aviation advocates,” said Bob Quinn, NBAA’s Midwest regional representative.
