Aerospace Industries Association: “It’s critical that Congress fund the FAA by passing a fiscal year 2011 appropriations bill. More continuing resolutions will further erode FAA’s ability to implement the much needed Next Generation Air Transportation System in a timely manner,” Marion C Blakey, President and CEO.
