Although U.S. House and Senate leaders will consider a short-term extension for FAA funding authority beyond the existing March 31 deadline, the reality is that the industry must remain vigilant against FAA reauthorization proposals for privatizing air traffic control, as contained in H.R. 4441. NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen said there’s still a critical need for industry stakeholders to let their representatives know that such a scenario would hurt business aviation. “The House is still working to find a path to the floor for H.R. 4441, and the Senate is expected to introduce its own FAA reauthorization measure soon,” noted Bolen.
