A Major GA Barrier May Finally Be Torn Down
ANN has just learned that NBAA
has hailed the introduction of House legislation to grant
renewed access to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport for
general aviation aircraft operators.
The legislation, H.R. 1496, was introduced today by House
Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Don Young
(R-At Large-AK), Minority Ranking Member Jim Oberstar (D-8-MN),
Aviation Subcommittee Chairman John Mica (R-7-FL), Subcommittee
Ranking Member Jerry Costello (D-12-IL), and Committee Member Del.
Eleanor Holmes-Norton (D-DC).
"NBAA thanks the leadership of the Transportation and
Infrastructure Committee for adding considerable voice to a growing
chorus of support for reopening Washington Reagan National Airport
to general aviation," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. "This
proposal recognizes that effective security policies can be
developed that strike a balance with economic realities and
individual freedoms. That has been NBAA's message all along.
"The business aviation community has long sought policies that
enable security-qualified operators to access National Airport,"
Bolen continued. "This legislation is yet another step in
that direction, and we look forward to working with its sponsors to
restore access to National Airport in a safe, secure manner."
Founded in 1947, NBAA serves its 7,400 Member Companies by
promoting the aviation interests of organizations utilizing
business aircraft in the United States and worldwide. The
association provides more than 100 products and services to the
business aviation community, including the NBAA Annual Meeting
