EAA Chairman Calls Huerta With Personal Congratulations

NBAA Also Sends Message Of Congratulations To The New Administrator

Jack Pelton, EAA Chairman of the Board, called Michael Huerta personally on Tuesday to offer the organization's congratulations after Huerta was confirmed by the U.S. Senate as permanent Administrator of the FAA. Huerta had served as acting administrator for a year after Randy Babbitt's resignation in December 2011.

"We have had a good working relationship with Administrator Huerta and we look forward to that continuing," Pelton said. "He has been supportive of GA in several areas, such as setting up the FAA's fuels program office that will provide leadership in finding viable alternatives to 100 low-lead fuels."
 
Pelton also pledged EAA's support on recreational aviation safety matters and a continued positive working relationship that seeks solutions for issues that face EAA members and GA. EAA's philosophy on working collaboratively with federal agencies and the GA community to find solutions and create opportunities continues a half-century of relationship-building efforts that began with EAA Founder Paul Poberezny in the 1950s.

In a statement, NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen praised the move by the Senate as well. "Throughout his tenure at the FAA, Michael Huerta has demonstrated strong leadership skills, and an in-depth understanding of issues, including the need for continued transformation to a Next Generation Air Traffic Control System [NextGen], which will produce safety and efficiency gains in America's aviation system," Bolen said.
 
In a recent letter to Bolen, Huerta made clear his appreciation for the size and diversity of the business aviation community, and its importance to the country. "Business aviation helps companies serve their customers and maintain their products more quickly in order to stay ahead of the competition," Huerta said, adding that the industry "contributes positively to our nation's balance of trade."
 
At a recent industry forum, Huerta confirmed the FAA's commitment to addressing issues important to the entire general aviation community, including the need to press forward with implementation of NextGen.
