Listening Session With SecTrans Allows NBAA To Advocate For BizAv

Buttigieg: 'Your Organizations Have Stepped Up To Find Solutions'

Wednesday, NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen took the opportunity to emphasize the business aviation community’s critical role in America’s economy, as well as the industry’s continued leadership in the safety, security and sustainability of flight during an “Aviation Listening Session” between newly confirmed DOT Secretary Pete Buttigieg and industry leaders.

“For the better part of a century, business aviation has served as a vital link in our air transportation system, and an important driver of our nation’s economy,” Bolen said. “We want to build on our unwavering commitment to operations that are safe, secure, sustainable and efficient, and we’re pleased to have the opportunity to begin that partnership with you and your team.”

During the session, Buttigieg expressed appreciation for the industry’s vital role throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, in transporting vaccines, medical equipment and relief supplies.

“Your organizations have stepped up to find solutions,” he noted.

In his remarks, Bolen outlined the toll the pandemic has taken on business aviation, “Last year, we saw operations and aircraft deliveries fall precipitously,” he noted. “But even in those challenging times, our industry has demonstrated a great deal of resilience and innovation.” By way of example, he pointed to the industry’s compliance with the 2020 ADS-B mandate, the promotion of sustainable aviation fuel and the development of advanced air mobility solutions. 

“I’m looking forward to working with you on so many of these priorities – from the future of fuel, to the true arrival of NextGen,” Buttigieg told Bolen. “I know you’re able to help make sure we get there.”
