Bolen Gives Congress a Rare Thumbs-Up

Aviation Governance Secured...At Least For a While

The National Business Aviation Association similarly applauded the passage of the FAA's recent reauthorization, contentedly recounting its passage through the house by a vote of 387 to 26.

Congress really cut things close to the wire, with the current expiration of the FAA's governing bill sitting right around the corner on May 17th. The bill gains the NBAA's blessing for all the usual reasons, but this year's includes a '1st-ever' general aviation title, a "key section of the legislation focused on enhancing safety, streamlining regulations and improving certification processes for general aviation aircraft, supporting certification for advanced air mobility (AAM) powered-lift aircraft and other technologies, and protecting flight privacy." That could prove vital in the coming years, since the rapidly expanding field of tech has so often outpaced legislation elsewhere. If the US is actually ready for a change, it could help ensure the nation heads into an AAM-focused world at the head of the pack.

"We are very pleased to see this important and historic legislation, after many months of work, advance to President Biden's desk to be signed into law," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. "Both sides of the aisle, on both sides of the Capitol, have come together and passed a bill that reflects the business aviation community's priorities, provides a long-term roadmap for the agency and ensures that America will continue to lead the world in aviation safety, security, sustainability, innovation, workforce development and investment in airports and other critical infrastructure."
