NBAA Calls Members to Throw Weight Behind FAA Authorization

Letters Inbound to Stakeholders As Part of Reauthorization Push Intensifies

The National Business Aviation Association has summoned the troops to come together and push their congressional reps to approve the FAA's reauthorization legislation.

The FAA currently operates under an extension granted, which only allows it to function through May 10th, so the industry is cutting it close. The NBAA has a letter calling for the reauthorization's passage, and those supporting the measure are invited to sign on with their own names to give the letter a little extra 'oomph'. The letter is addressed to the leadership of the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, a fairly well-selected pressure point to leverage.

“As representatives of the business aviation sector, we recognize the vital role that general aviation plays in driving economic growth, facilitating commerce and providing essential transportation services,” reads the missive.

“We are writing to express our strong support for the bipartisan, bicameral, compromise Amendment in the Nature of a Substitute to H.R. 3935, the Securing Growth and Robust Leadership in American Aviation Act, which will reauthorize the FAA and aviation safety and infrastructure programs for the next five years,” the letter adds.

“The bipartisan, bicameral compromise strengthens the safety, efficiency and accessibility of general aviation,” the letter states. “We appreciate the provisions that prioritize safety, streamline regulations, and improve certification processes for general aviation aircraft, including advanced air mobility. These measures will not only ensure the continued safe operation of general aviation but also promote innovation and technological advancement within the industry.”
