Tell Congress – Air Traffic Control Needs Reform (Archived)

How smooth was your last trip through the airport?
It’s time to reform the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The Aviation, Innovation, Reform and Reauthorization (AIRR) Act of 2017 is a comprehensive reform bill that lowers taxes, streamlines air traffic control, and improves service for traveling consumers.

The AIRR Act helps ensure a safe, efficient, 21st Century aviation system that protects taxpayers and travelers alike:

  • transfers air traffic control operations and personnel to a new, not-for-profit corporate entity to reduce government overreach and remove 35,000 employees from the federal payroll
  • streamlines certification so U.S. companies can better compete and get products to market faster
  • requires airlines to refund baggage fees for bags delayed more than 24 hours on domestic flights
  • prohibits airlines from charging passengers a fee for the use of aircraft restrooms
  • ensures critical access to the aviation system in America’s rural and small communities and vibrant general aviation community

Tell your congressman to pass the AIRR Act and put America first in aviation technology AND consumer experience.
