RAA urges Congress and FAA to immediately address pilot supply challenge

Download full press release

Washington, DC--The Regional Airline Association (RAA) issued a call to action for Congress and the FAA to work together to fix the pilot supply challenges outlined in the GAO’s report “Aviation Workforce—Current and Future Availability of Airline Pilots” issued today. The report confirms the traditional pilot supply pipeline has been completely severed by the “1500 hour rule” and has added an extraordinary time and financial burden for the nation’s highly trained pilots to enter the workforce. The rule has unintentionally cost thousands of airline and related jobs, and dozens of communities their air service. These cuts will continue to grow over the coming years unless the government immediately addresses this issue, stated RAA.
