AIA President and CEO Marion C. Blakey Comments On FAA
It seems that former FAA Administrator Marion Blakey is anxious
to see someone take over her old job... officially, that is.
Blakey, late last week, issued the following statement:
"I am concerned that Congress adjourned without holding a
hearing on the nomination of acting Administrator Robert A.
Sturgell to become the next FAA administrator. He is superbly
qualified for the position and I urge Congress to move forward with
hearings next year at its earliest opportunity.
A decade ago, Congress established the FAA administrator
position with a five-year term to provide the stability and
continuity necessary for an agency that is focused on safety and
complicated operation responsibilities.
Since then, both administrators have served full five-year
terms, major modernization programs are on schedule and budget and
the nation's skies have never been safer.
It is critical for the continued smooth operation of our
nation's air transportation system to have a person confirmed and
appointed for a five-year term as soon as possible."
AIA, Blakey's current gig, was founded in 1919, as the Aerospace
Industries Association. It represents the nation's leading
manufacturers and suppliers of civil, military, and business
aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, space systems,
aircraft engines, materiel, and related components, equipment
services, and information technology.
