The Samoan Fa’a culture, which has been preserved for over 3,000 years from threats, might be adopted by the FAA during threats of budget and related proposals.
It’s not unexpected that helicopters haven’t had the greatest safety history, but news releases by the FAA and USHST provide great and somewhat surprising news.
Take a look at the FAA’s press release on NextGen and a transcription of President Trump’s White House meeting with the aviation industry.
President Trump insinuated that his aircraft’s chief pilot would be the next FAA Administrator, but running the FAA is a job demanding more than excellent piloting skills, particularly with the Executive Challenges of completing NextGen.
The Santa Monica Airport has been one of the most difficult airport policy battles for almost 40 years. What the proposed agreement really means and whether the Trump Administration intends to let it stand will not only be a landmark airport decision, but it may influence FAA policy direction for years.
In 1996, the FAA was called the tombstone agency. After FAA’s proactive safety initiatives, 2012 was the safest year in aviation history and every year since.
The Table Mesa-FAA process is truly open. The most effective approach is a collaborative dialogue aimed at defining win/win alternatives to achieve NextGen efficiencies while fairly balancing noise impacts.
Here are some thoughts to consider on ATC privatization. Continuing with the current structure has problems, and changes pose risks. There is considerable momentum towards moving quickly, so my primary advice is to be cautious.
Here is what was happening in the positions who execute the aviation policy of the Trump Administration. What does this all mean?
There is a need for a realistic contingency plan, and the FAA acknowledged that it still has work to do, but without more explanation, it is a BIG STRETCH to claim that this deficiency proves that privatization is needed.
