Statement on Air Traffic Control Reform

 

We are pleased that the proposed budget lays solid groundwork for infrastructure modernization and an independent, non-governmental air traffic control system that will allow more flights to operate safely in the congested air space and at crowded airports around the United States. There is great need for a system that will be able to efficiently respond to the needs of users, have access to capital markets and appropriately charge for its services with a credible, transparent accounting system based on actual costs. It is essential that the cost accounting system be fair and that no carrier’s charges materially increase over the current rates until the benefits from the system improvements materialize and then only in proportion to those benefits.
