RAF joins its aviation industry friends to sign FAA Reauthorization Letter.

On June 8, a letter was sent to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urging the U.S. House of Representatives to pass the FAA Reauthorization Act. 

The letter states that aviation is vital to the U.S. economy, “contributing nearly $2 trillion in total economic activity, and supporting some 12 million jobs. Aviation manufacturing also continues to be the nation’s top net export.” 

The Senate passed its FAA Reauthorization bill 95-3. The letter concludes with a strong request for House passage, “so that together we can address important issues and reduce the costly regulatory and certification processes that continue to stifle safety, job creation, and growth in the aviation industry.”

Congress must pass this critical piece of pro-GA legislation to the President’s desk by July 15 when the current extension expires.
