Washington, DC—February 26, 2013--RAA and others met today with FAA and Congressional representatives to outline the potential impact of federal government sequestration on the regional airlines which operate one-half of the nation’s scheduled flights. “We recognize and appreciate the thoughtful effort FAA is making to mitigate consequences on the traveling and shipping public,” said RAA President Roger Cohen, adding “today was the first of many conversations toward our goal of keeping US communities, nearly 500 of which rely exclusively on regional airlines, connected to the global transportation network.”
