Frederick, MD – The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association is pleased that the House of Representatives and the Senate have finalized details for a long-term FAA reauthorization bill on Jan. 31. This agreement now paves the way for a full vote in both houses before the latest short-term funding extension expires on Feb. 17.
The FAA has operated under a record 23 short-term funding extensions since 2007. The long-term bill would fund the agency through fiscal year 2015.
The bill’s general aviation highlights include:
“The House and Senate agreement shows the support Congress has for funding the FAA and moving forward with air traffic control modernization and satellite-based navigation,” said AOPA President Craig Fuller. “This move is long overdue and couldn’t come at a more critical juncture to improve the National Airspace System and keep it the model for countries worldwide.”
