Session To Be Held At 2008 NATA Air Charter Summit
The National Air Transportation
Association tells ANN that FAA officials directly responsible for
the oversight of Part 135 on-demand air charter operators will
provide an in-depth review of upcoming regulatory changes during a
special session at the 2008 NATA Air Charter Summit.
The FAA Regulatory Review will feature James Ballough, director
of the FAA's Flight Standards Service, and Dennis Pratte, manager
of the FAA's Part 135 Air Carrier Operations Branch.
"Recent interest in how the FAA oversees airlines has many
wondering about the implications for Part 135 air carriers, making
this briefing critical for all 135 operators," said NATA President
James K. Coyne.
Lingering concerns over operational control, the increasingly
complicated standards for using simulator training centers,
Extended-Range Twin-Engine Operational Performance Standards, and
the likelihood of mandatory Safety Management Systems, are just
some of the critical topics that Ballough and Pratte are expected
The 2008 NATA Air Charter Summit will be held on June 9-11 in
suburban Washington, DC at the Westfields Marriott Washington
Dulles Hotel in Chantilly, VA.
