Your Action Needed Before House ATC Privatization Vote

Toll-free number connects direct to congressional offices

The House 21st Century Aviation Innovation, Reform and Reauthorization (AIRR) Act (H.R. 2997) is moving rapidly and may get a vote on the House floor within days. As proposed in the bill, the privatized ATC system would be governed by a board dominated by commercial and financial interests. With no congressional oversight, the board would be accountable to no one, devastating general aviation and your freedom of flight, rural and GA airports, and the fly-ins and aviation activities you enjoy.

We need you to call your representatives in Congress. Call toll-free (855) 265-9002 to be connected directly to your lawmaker’s office. Phone calls are more effective than e-mails, so act now. Go to EAA's Rally Congress tool to find your representative or their local office.

Tell them you oppose H.R. 2997, the 21st Century AIRR Act, which includes ATC privatization. Nearly 120 GA groups have already stated their opposition to ATC privatization in a joint letter to Congress.

Why is this important? Listen to EAA CEO Jack J. Pelton  discuss ATC privatization on The Green Dot podcast.
