Bunce Praises "Commitment To Get This Done"
The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) praised
Wednesday's announcement of the resumption of general aviation
flights at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA).
"First, let me thank DHS Deputy Secretary Michael Jackson,
Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for TSA David Stone, and
FAA Administrator Marion Blakey for their commitment to get this
done," said GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce. "The general
aviation community also owes much to the Members of Congress who
worked diligently with us and the federal government towards a
solution. Without their personal attention, today's announcement
would not have happened."
"Second, this announcement marks the
culmination of years of hard work to open an airport closed to
general aviation after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
The general aviation community has worked side-by-side with federal
security officials for an effective plan that balances freedom of
movement and access with security."
"GAMA will continue to work closely with the TSA, FAA, and other
federal agencies during this transition period. It is our hope that
once the current plan for GA access is in place we can work to
increase the number of gateway cities and operators who can access
our nation's capital."
