WARBIRD RADIO – There’s major legislation for aviators taking shape in 2016. On this episode Matt Jolley welcomes warbird pilot and US Congressman, Sam Graves to Warbird Radio LIVE. Congressman Graves serves on the United States House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and will provide an update on the AIRR Act.
According to a recent committee news release:
“Under the AIRR Act, the federally chartered air traffic control corporation will be governed by a board representing the aviation system’s users and the public interest. The comprehensive reauthorization bill also streamlines the FAA’s aviation equipment and aircraft certification processes, provides additional improvements for consumers, addresses aviation safety issues, gives the FAA more tools for the safe integration of unmanned aircraft systems, and provides for airport infrastructure improvements across the country”.
The news release also points out that the AIRR Act was approved by a vote of 32 to 26 in committee (Graves voted against). Congressman Graves will also address some of the recent rule making concerning model aircraft enthusiasts and Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) members.
Also on the show tonight is Sean Elliott from the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). Sean is the Vice President of Advocacy and Safety for the EAA and will explain the EAA’s position on this pivotal piece of proposed legislation. According to a recently published letter on the EAA’s website:
“As one congressman said this week, this would be the biggest divestment of taxpayer property to private interests in world history, so why have the bill’s authors been so secretive about its contents prior to introduction and now so determined to hurriedly ramrod it through Congress?” asked EAA CEO/chairman Jack Pelton. “ATC privatization will put the big squeeze on general aviation in a way that threatens the individual freedom of flight and hands control of America’s airspace to commercial and airline interests.”
Join us for a complete update tonight at 8pm EASTERN. Your calls and comments are welcome as well.
