Coyne, Longmuir To Ask For GA Access At Reagan National
The honchos at two high-profile advocacy groups will be on
Capitol Hill next week, hoping to convince Congress to reopen
Ronald Reagan National Airport to general aviation traffic.
James K. Coyne, president of the National Air Transportation
Association (NATA), and Shelley A. Longmuir, President and CEO of
the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), will testify
this coming Tuesday, March 16, before the House Subcommittee on
Aviation, chaired by Rep. John Mica (R-FL).
The subject of the hearing is whether to reopen Ronald Reagan
Washington National Airport (DCA) to non-scheduled commercial air
carrier (charter) flights, which have been banned from the airport
since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
