FABA Joins Partner Associations Opposing Proposed ATC Privatization in DC

FABA and other prominent industry associations banned together this week to spread the “Call to Action” against the proposed House Bill H.R. 4441 that calls for ATC privatization funded by user fees.  Although the bill does not impact certain segments of the GA industry directly with user fees, Part 135 operators would be subject to new charges.  There are also long term concerns about airspace access for GA aircraft with the current bill structure.    

If you have not already done so, please take this time to use NBAA's CONTACT CONGRESS online tool to voice your opposition to these initiatives.  It takes only a few minutes to do this, and there's no limit to how many times you generate a letter to your elected officials.  We also ask that you encourage others within your network to do the same.
FABA Participates in Event at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

FABA participated this week in Embry-Riddle’s 2016 Government Agency & Non-Profit Career Fair in Daytona. The event provided an opportunity to network with students looking for internships and careers in these sectors. FABA was joined by NBAA and South Florida Business Aviation at the event. Student outreach has become a large part of FABA’s focus in recent years. Look for “Pay it Forward” opportunities to sponsor student registrations for the annual FABA Conference and Trade Show in the coming weeks. FABA’s goal is to sponsor 10 students to join our conference in Sarasota this June 13 & 14!
