Washington, DC – Today, the Alliance for Aviation Across America welcomed the passage of H.R. 3935, the Securing Growth and Robust Leadership in American Aviation Act, in the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislation reauthorizes the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) through fiscal year 2028.
Selena Shilad, Executive Director of the Alliance for Aviation Across America, stated, “We welcome this legislation, which will support our nation’s aviation infrastructure, including general aviation and our network of local airports, as well as invest in the future growth of the aviation sector.”
The legislation not only reauthorizes the FAA, but includes investments in airports and aviation infrastructure in areas of growth such as advanced air mobility. General aviation and our network of about 5,000 local airports support $247 billion in economic activity, more than a million jobs, as well as access to medical care, agriculture, and many critical services.
A FAA reauthorization bill, S.1939, remains under consideration in the U.S Senate, and the two bills will need to be reconciled and signed into law before the current FAA authorization expires on September 30, 2023.
Formed in 2007, the Alliance for Aviation Across America is a non-profit coalition of over 7,000 individuals, businesses, agricultural groups, FBO’s, airports, elected officials, charitable organizations, and leading business and aviation groups that support the interests of the general aviation community across various public policy issues.
