NBAA Stresses Importance of FAA Reauth

Lack of Long-Term Confidence Harms Industry, Says Stakeholder

A handful of GA advocacy groups have taken issue with the "continued short-term extensions of authorization for the FAA", telling Congress that they could "challenge the certainty that industry and the FAA depend on to enable long-term planning and investment in many critical areas required to ensure the safety of the NAS and America's global leadership in aviation."

The FAA is only authorized through December 31st of this year, despite months of negotiations. Last July, the House passed bipartisan reauthorization legislation that would see the FAA set through 2028, but the Senate has yet to act on the bill. Patience, it seems, is wearing thin in the industry.

"We commend the House of Representatives and the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and its leadership on the passage of the Securing Growth and Robust Leadership in American Aviation Act, H.R. 3935," said the address. "This bipartisan legislation reauthorizes the FAA’s aviation safety and infrastructure programs for five years and provides the multi-year structure, resources, and direction the FAA needs. Additionally, H.R. 3935 recognizes the vital national role of our industry by including the first-ever general aviation title, which makes critical reforms to FAA services of specific interest to our industry segment. This bill enables the FAA to move forward on areas of significant importance to general aviation including workforce development, regulatory process improvement, airspace modernization, and the development and enabling of new technologies."
