EAA Outlines Safety-Enhancing Efforts at GA Roundtable
December 19, 2019 - EAA outlined its organizational safety-enhancing efforts as well as the importance of MOSAIC for the future of GA. EAA CEO and Chairman of the Board Jack J. Pelton addressed the FAA General Aviation Safety Roundtable in Washington, D.C., last week. MOSAIC is a sweeping reform of special airworthiness certification that includes greatly anticipated reforms to the light-sport aircraft category, amateur-built aircraft, and other major benefits for the general aviation fleet.
Pelton and Sean Elliot, vice president of advocacy and safety, attended the GA safety roundtable, which was the first one with new FAA administrator Steve Dickson in attendance. During his segment addressing the panel, Pelton highlighted EAA's role in GA safety and the key elements of MOSAIC that will drive future improvements for all of GA.
"The FAA administrator's GA roundtable provided the ideal forum for EAA to present directly to the new administrator the importance of moving forward the MOSAIC regulatory and policy changes to support continued safety improvements and growth of GA," Pelton said. "The administrator, Steve Dickson, responded favorably to keeping MOSAIC moving forward."
EAA looks forward to our regular interactions with FAA senior leadership, as well as the unique opportunity provided by EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2020 to continue to showcase the importance of EAA's efforts within the GA community to the new administrator.
