EAA Supports Proposed National Center for the Advancement of Aviation
March 5, 2020 - EAA is one of several dozen aviation organizations to support bipartisan legislation introduced by Sens. Jim Inhofe and Tammy Duckworth that would create a National Center for the Advancement of Aviation to promote aviation and aerospace as a whole.
"What I think is important is this becomes a national center with public and private support to encourage and foster all aspects of the aviation industry, from assemblers to pilots," said Jack J. Pelton, EAA CEO and chairman of the board. "Ideally, this should help create an efficient effort that supports job creation, as opposed to a more fragmented approach."
The National Center for the Advancement of Aviation would focus on four primary areas: aviation and aerospace STEM curriculum, workforce development, economic and safety data and research sharing, and a forum for cross-disciplinary collaboration.
The robust collection of endorsers is made up of more than 50 aviation groups, including EAA Warbirds of America and the EAA Type Club Coalition.
