NATCA SUPPORTS FAA BILL AGREEMENT

WASHINGTON – NATCA President Paul Rinaldi praised today’s news that Congressional negotiators have reached an agreement on a long-term reauthorization of the FAA:

“Our country’s aviation system, already the world’s safest, needs this bill. It’s been a long time coming; nearly five years in the making. Long-term funding – including vital funds for the NextGen air traffic control system – will lead to safer and more reliable air travel. This bill will help the aviation industry sustain over 11 million jobs and continue to contribute $1.2 trillion in economic activity each year. It will also help protect the rights of over 30,000 hard-working aviation safety professionals at the FAA. We urge swift passage of this bill.”
