WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Federal Aviation Association (FAA) today decided that this Sequestration Challenge has opened its eyes and decided that the airport business is sufficiently mature now that they really don’t need us looking over their shoulder. Administrator Heurta stated, without the help of Secretary LeHood, “Chip Barclay has been telling me for years that his members know what they are doing. When the FAA was assessing what REALLY needed to be done under Sequestration, we saw that the Part 139 certificate holders did not really benefit from our oversight. So, as a retirement gift to Chip, I told our airport folks that the Sequestration restrictions allow our folks to stay in their offices, ignore what the airports are really doing and just write new rules.”

This really innovative regulatory action is being implemented by an FAA Order, which means that the new regulatory rule must be reviewed on April 1, 20014.
