DOT Secretary Opens The First Meeting Of The New Panel
At the opening session of the Future of Aviation Advisory
Committee meeting Tuesday, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood
(pictured) charged the committee's members with helping to
ensure that the U.S. aviation industry remains vital, competitive,
sustainable and safe.
"Today, men and women who care deeply about the future of
aviation in this country come together to challenge old assumptions
and tackle persistent problems in new ways," Secretary LaHood told
the members meeting at the U.S. Department of Transportation
headquarters. "I have high hopes and high expectations for
what this committee of diverse experts can accomplish on behalf of
the aviation industry, its workforce and consumers."
The committee, formally established in April, grew out of a
forum last November hosted by Secretary LaHood on the future of the
U.S. aviation industry. The committee is charged with
providing information, advice, and recommendations to the Secretary
on ensuring the competitiveness of the U.S. aviation industry and
its capability to address the evolving transportation needs,
challenges and opportunities of the U.S. and global economy.
The committee will focus principally on five issue areas:
ensuring aviation safety, ensuring a world-class aviation
workforce, balancing the industry's competitiveness and viability,
securing stable funding for aviation systems, and addressing
environmental challenges and solutions. The committee plans
to meet five times over the coming year, during which it will
develop its recommendations to the Secretary.
