Aero-News: Quote of the Day (07.18.07)

"The leadership at the FAA time and again has failed New Yorkers. So now it is time for that leadership to change.

We need an FAA that works to fix these problems, not ignore them."

Source: Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who on Tuesday called for Marion Blakey's resignation as FAA Administrator -- saying responsibility for the summer's increasing number of flight delays and cancellations ultimately rests with her.
