ARSA has a habit of placing issues before its Members and other aviation trade associations in interesting, clever ways. A turn of a headline phrase is their usual stroke of genius. The above Reauthorization countdown clock is a superb reminder of Aviation’s equivalent of Doomsday is speeding towards the industry; for when that clock reaches ZERO without legislative action, the FAA will hold no statutory authority.
Reauthorization faces a lot of substantive issues on both macro (in particular the dreaded privatization) and micro levels. Additionally the process from a final draft to a final bill to being signed by the President is daunting.
The clock is ticking; you might want to include the ARSA clock in your computer’s bookmarks.
