The U.S. desperately needs to examine its aviation system, with many of the goals of the committee in mind. But that would only tell half the story. Truly examining competitiveness, and making the long-term decisions and investments this system needs to meet America’s needs and compete globally, will require a National Aviation Policy. This is a multi-stakeholder system, and today’s hearing is not comprehensive. The interests of ALL parties must be considered, not just a single industry. We strongly urge this committee to use this hearing as a starting point - but not as the end. We look forward to the next conversation - and to many more seats at the table.
