Inhofe Requests Community Feedback
Legislation would create a National Center for the Advancement of Aviation
July 28, 2019 - Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Oklahoma) is requesting comments and feedback from the general aviation community on the establishment of a National Center for the Advancement of Aviation.
"My legislation would form an independent, nongovernment center tasked with four key goals to support the future of American aviation: foster a diverse and reinvigorated aviation workforce, facilitate new and expanded STEM educational opportunities for high school students interested in aviation, serve as a central repository of safety and economic data, and support research and collaborate on training methods and new technologies," Inhofe said.
Inhofe went on to say that the legislation would be good not just for the aviation sector, but for the entire country.
"Standing up a national center to advance aviation by facilitating ideas and cooperation would help us address the demands and opportunities associated with a safe and vibrant national aviation system and would foster the collaborative partnership across all stakeholders to maintain our nation’s leadership and comparative advantage in aviation," Inhofe said.
Inhofe is requesting feedback from the aviation community on how this legislation can best meet their needs as a pilot or other aviation enthusiast, and ensure a safe and innovative industry that is free of heavy-handed bureaucracy.
