NBAA Concerned and Disappointed by President's Budget Proposal

NBAA Concerned and Disappointed by President's Budget Proposal
NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen expressed concern over budget-planning details released May 23 by the White House, showing the Trump administration’s apparent commitment to privatizing the nation’s ATC system. “For several years, NBAA has said the public airspace belongs to the American public and should serve all Americans,” Bolen said. “The president’s budget takes the public’s elected representatives out of the equation and leaves it to a private board to ensure the public’s interest is being well served. We are troubled and concerned by this proposal and will review it closely as the legislative process moves forward.” Learn more details about the White House budget proposal.
