WASHINGTON – NATCA President Paul Rinaldi praised today’s announcement that Congressional leaders have reached an agreement on a long-term reauthorization of the FAA:

“This bill has been a long time coming; nearly five years in the making. At a time when cooperation and bipartisanship are considered near-blasphemy in our nation’s capital, the men and women of NATCA are pleased to see lawmakers in Washington reach a long overdue compromise on a multi-year FAA Reauthorization. In the United States, the aviation industry sustains over 11 million jobs and contributes $1.2 trillion in economic activity each year. This bill will help protect the rights of over 30,000 hard-working aviation safety professionals at the FAA, while ensuring the livelihood of millions of working Americans that depend on a vibrant aviation sector.

“This compromise will put us on a path toward modernization and ensure that the U.S. will continue to lead with the safest and most efficient air traffic control system in the world.”
