NBAA is closely monitoring the impacts of the partial government shutdown that began on Dec. 21, 2018. Since Congress and the President could not reach an agreement over government funding, the departments of Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, State, Interior, Agriculture, Treasury, Commerce, Homeland Security and Justice, as well as other independent agencies are all subject to the shutdown.
With the Department of Transportation shut down, many key FAA functions will be disrupted. However, thanks to the work of the general aviation community, the FAA Registry in Oklahoma City has been deemed essential and will continue operating during the shutdown.
Although the registry is open, the extended shutdown is causing challenges for general aviation. Contact Congress today to let elected officials know the impact of the shutdown on GA.
