As you may have read recently, Air Traffic Control privatization is once again on the table following the release of the White House and the Office of Management and Budget’s reorganization of the federal government plan. The good news This proposal has already failed multiple times. Reintroduced in late June, it has once again met […]
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 […]

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 […]
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!

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.
