Washington, DC- Today RAA was joined by several aviation associations in two letters voicing strong support for the Essential Air Service program, which faces elimination in Federal Aviation Reauthorization bills moving through both chambers of Congress.
The letter, jointly signed by ACI, AAAE, NASAO and RAA, underlines: “Cutting Essential Air Service would serve as a deathblow to the economic health of hundreds of small communities across the nation. Eliminating this important program is the wrong thing to do, and now is the worst time to do it.”
Read the coalition letters to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and to the Senate.
