WASHINGTON – Along with aviation leaders representing industry, education, government and labor, NATCA President Paul Rinaldi has been named a member of the FAA’s Management Advisory Council – a group designed to advise Administrator Randy Babbitt on a wide array of aviation issues. NATCA has never had representation on the council before.

Rinaldi joins 12 other members in evaluating important National Airspace System issues such as the FAA’s financial management structure, cost-efficiency improvements and labor management issues.  Along with representatives from the industry the council also features members from the Department of Defense and Department of Transportation.

Its existence mandated by Congress as part of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 1996, the council meets four times a year and its primary purpose is to protect the safety of the system and ensure fiscally responsible governance in order to protect public interest and maintain the FAA’s status as the world leader in aviation – as well as providing insight on any other topics the Administrator selects.

Said Rinaldi:  “I am honored to serve on the Management Advisory Council and offer any advice and insight I can to Administrator Babbitt on the National Airspace System.  The fact that I have been asked to be a member is reflective of the inclusive management style that the Administrator has instituted at the agency.  I look forward to continuing to work together to keep the system safe.”
