AUVSI Congratulates Michael Huerta On His Confirmation

Toscano: Huerta Made Permanent Administrator At A 'Critical Time' For The Agency

The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) President & CEO Michael Toscano today congratulated Michael Huerta on his confirmation as the administrator of the FAA.

“For more than a year, Michael Huerta has led the FAA admirably as acting administrator, and we are pleased to see Congress make his appointment official,” Toscano said. “These next several years are important ones for the FAA, as the agency moves forward with the integration of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System (NAS) and continues to develop the NextGen air traffic control system.”
 
“This is a critical time for the FAA and the aerospace industry, and it is important the FAA have a permanent leader to advance these priorities, especially the integration of UAS," Toscano said. "This technology holds tremendous potential to save money, save time and, most importantly, save lives. Strong and clear leadership is needed to make sure the process stays on track, and Huerta’s confirmation is a step in the right direction.”
 
“We look forward to working with Administrator Huerta in the coming months and years to advance these innovations in a safe manner, in keeping with the FAA’s primary mission. We are confident that under Administrator Huerta’s leadership, the FAA will continue to ensure that the United States aerospace industry stays at the forefront of aviation safety and technological advances,” Toscano said.
