Aviation Working Group Holds First Meeting

On September 30, Eno hosted the inaugural meeting of our brand new Aviation Working Group. After the successful release of the NextGen Working Group final report, the group pivoted into a broader Aviation Working Group. This Working Group is also co-chaired by former Secretary of Transportation Jim Burnley and former Senator Byron Dorgan, and its first task will be to tackle certification issues at the Federal Aviation Administration.

Attendees representing aviation stakeholders, former policy makers, and academics discussed the scope of the project, helping Eno’s research team focus on the critical areas of certification. These areas include aircraft and other aviation products, personnel, air traffic control and air traffic controllers, repair stations, operations, and new airspace users including unmanned vehicles and commercial space.

To help inform the Working Group of the issues involved, two panels featuring representatives from organizations including the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), Boeing, the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), and the National Air Transportation Association (NATA). Stakeholders presented on topics including aircraft, pilots, and air traffic control.

If you or your organization is interested in joining the team to develop research-based recommendations for reforming the certification process at the Federal Aviation Administration please contact Eno’s Director of Development, Patrice Davenport.
