NBAA: Government Shutdown Highlights Need for Wise Decision-Making on Aviation Spending

Ed Bolen called on government leaders and industry stakeholders to quickly develop a path for FAA spending amidst the uncertain funding environment in Washington.


“We recognize that the requirement for budget cuts is a serious challenge,” Bolen continued. “But it doesn’t need to be a crisis, and it doesn’t need to be destructive.

“Since the Wright brothers’ first flight, the U.S. has led the world in virtually all aspects of aviation. How we handle the present situation will go a long way toward determining if that continues to be true in the future.”
