We Need Stable, Predictable Funding for NAS

NATCA President Paul Rinaldi recently testified before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee at its hearing on Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization, with a focus on air traffic control modernization and reform. Rinaldi's message was direct: the lack of stable or predictable funding for the National Airspace System (NAS) is unacceptable, and a major change is needed in order to maintain and advance the system’s safety and efficiency.

Details matter in this process. Our goal is to maintain and improve upon our high standard. However, fundamental change is needed to do so.
