Polls show majority support full funding for FAA

Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) reports (07-Apr-2011) recent polling conducted on its behalf shows considerable public support for fully funding the US Federal Aviation Administration and the Next Generation Air Transportation System. Some 68% of respondents support new technologies to improve air safety while 65% percent favour maintaining or increasing FAA funding levels. [more]

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.
