NACA Applauds Nomination of Michael Whitaker for FAA Administrator

In response to the nomination of Michael Whitaker to be the next FAA Administrator, National Air Carrier Association President and CEO George Novak issued the following statement:

NACA commends the White House for nominating Michael Whitaker to be the next Federal Aviation Administration Administrator. As a former commercial airline pilot and deputy administrator of the FAA, Mr. Whitaker is extremely well-positioned to provide the leadership the agency needs to address several long-standing challenges facing the airline industry. 
Modernizing the nation’s air traffic control (ATC) system, ensuring robust air traffic controller staffing levels  particularly in Florida, to reduce congestion and delays  and addressing recent safety issues, including a rise in runway incursions, are all critical issues needing immediate attention. We look forward to working collaboratively with Mr. Whitaker, DOT leadership, and other aviation stakeholders to ensure that we continue to have the safest, most efficient ATC system in the world.
