I’m excited to announce that, thanks to you, we have achieved a MAJOR WIN for Business and General Aviation! It appears, at least for now, through our collective efforts and shared voices, we have successfully defeated legislation “H.R. 2997”, – a bill that would privatize Air Traffic Control, put it into the hands of the […]
UPDATE: Due to Hurricane Irma, the Speaker cancelled votes on Monday, September 11, but the airlines are still working to get the votes to get this to the House Floor this month, and WE MUST PREVENT THESE VOTES! We need you to act today! The time to act and oppose legislation (HR 2997) that will […]
NEW UPDATE: Please check out the following fact sheet “Myths vs. Facts” on this issue produced by NBAA. It’s time to move and take action! Control of the FAA and ATC is under siege by the Airlines to unilaterally gain control, lower the priority, and restrict access of Business Aviation in the United States. This […]
As a result of the currency devaluation currently taking place in Nigeria, recurring fuel shortages are being reported across the country, particularly in Abuja (DNAA), Port Harcourt (DNPO) and Lagos (DNMM). Fuel suppliers across Nigeria are not able to keep an adequate supply of fuel on hand, leading to recurring shortages. It is recommended that […]
Thank you for your advocacy for our industry! Using NBAA’s tools to Contact Congress, you’ve made our voices heard that a privatized United States air traffic control is not a viable solution! As you can see from this Wall Street Journal article, our efforts are moving the needle. Keep up the good work, and keep getting the […]
Please read and action ASAP! There are reports that as soon as early February, the House Transportation and Infrastructure (T&I) Committee will be considering a proposal to strip the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of its management of the U.S. Air Traffic Control System, transferring its operation to a private entity funded by user fees.
Dear Friends, It’s that time again – time for us to step up as an industry, let our collective voices be heard and protect our industry and livelihoods! As you can read in NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen’s letter, the issue of privatizing air traffic control paid for by user fees is once again […]
Thank you for joining me in standing up for business aviation by pushing the button and contacting Congress urging it to end the 17-day government shutdown. While we certainly welcome the agreement reached last week, we still face challenges, and as NBAA President and CEO, Ed Bolen, said, “We will need to remain vigilant.”
While the U.S. government shutdown continues, the rest of us in business aviation are still busy at work, helping our country and industry thrive. Although many of us were not able to join NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen at the rally on Capitol Hill last week to encourage policymakers to reopen the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), so that vital aviation services can resume, we can have our own rally online.
The shutdown of the United States government, which began Oct. 1, unfortunately is having the unintended consequence of negatively impacting the industry we love, and one which supports our livelihoods. As an industry, it is absolutely vital for business aviation to band together to let our elected leaders in Washington D.C. understand how each day of the shutdown hurts our industry and could lead to eliminated jobs, closed companies, and a negative impact on our economy.
