AOPA among groups requesting DOT action on congestion

Published in Midwest Flyer Magazine October/November 2022 Digital Issue

General aviation organizations, including the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, National Business Aviation Association and Experimental Aircraft Association, have issued a letter to persuade the Department of Transportation to work on resolving congestion in the U.S. National Airspace System, which the groups say is the result of factors such as changing traffic conditions, shortages of air traffic controllers and unusual weather patterns. The letter, sent to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, requests a meeting to address the issues and said, “Together, we can leverage proven tools and airspace-management techniques to address the challenges of the moment, even as we continue to transform the aviation system to meet the needs of the future.”
