Aviation Organizations Applaud Senate On Passage Of FAA Reauthorization Bill

National Air Transportation Association (NATA) President James K. Coyne praised the United States Senate for passing legislation to reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The bill reflects many of the same provisions as U.S. House of Representatives-passed bill H.R. 915 and also includes many new provisions such as aviation safety measures.

The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) welcomed Senate passage of a three-year bill to fund the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and continue transformation to a Next Generation Air Traffic Control, or “NextGen” aviation system. “NBAA and other general aviation associations have been strong advocates for proposals to modernize the nation’s aviation system, and the action taken by Senate leaders today marks a good step in that direction,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen.
