Aviation is part of the lifeblood of modern economies, moving people and goods around the nation and the globe. The American economy literally could not function without it and a tremendous collaborative effort of industry and government maintains the safest airspace in the world. But challenges remain as congestion and delays hinder airports and high-altitude traffic is guided by inefficient and old point-to-point, ground-based radar technology. At the same time, qualified workers needed to meet the global demands for air travel have grown increasingly scarce and new technologies like drones are challenging airline safety and security.

Aviation Working Group
Eno’s Aviation Working Group is a standing advisory group on all matters relating to aviation policy. The group provides Eno staff with insights, knowledge, feedback, and guidance on how to approach some of the most challenging contemporary aviation issues. The goal of the group is to
(1) educate the public at large as well as policy makers as to the importance of the aviation industry to the U.S. economy;
(2) identify the roadblocks to progress, innovation, and modernization; and
(3) propose bold, pragmatic policy solutions to help tackle those challenges.
Focus Areas for Current Work:
UAS Integration: Research alternatives for certifying and integrating unmanned aerial systems into the national airspace system and craft clear and actionable policy recommendations for a path forward
Workforce: Identify causes and solutions for workforce shortages across the industry to provide actionable recommendations for leaders
Policy Analysis: Provide analysis and recommendations to inform federal aviation policy related to funding and finance issues, air traffic control reform, and certification.
