Coyne Looks Forward To Working With New FAA Administrator
NATA President James K. Coyne (a former member of Congress, by
the way) has praised the United States Senate for confirming Randy
Babbitt as the next FAA administrator. Babbitt is slated to serve a
five-year term and takes over immediately for acting FAA
Administrator Lynn Osmus.
Babbitt (pictured below), former president and chief executive
officer of the Air Line Pilots Association, has more than 40 years
of aviation experience. Last year, SecTrans Mary Peters named
Babbitt to the independent review team tasked with evaluating and
crafting recommendations to improve the FAA's implementation of the
aviation safety system and its culture of safety.
"I applaud the Senate leadership for approving Randy Babbitt's
confirmation as the next FAA administrator," stated Coyne.
"Administrator Babbitt has a lengthy priority list to tackle over
the next five years, including modernizing our nation's air traffic
control system, and NATA and its members stand ready to work with
him and his staff."
Commenting on the importance for the new FAA administrator to
work immediately with Congress to approve a long-term FAA
reauthorization bill, Coyne stated, "It is clear that as the House
approves its bill, that there is now momentum to pass FAA
reauthorization legislation finally. I am hopeful that
Administrator Babbitt's confirmation will carry us over the hump
towards passage of a bill that modernizes our air traffic control
system, rejects user fees, and invests in airport
