Hosted by Michael Sargent, Policy Analyst, Transportation and Infrastructure, The Heritage Foundation

The U.S. aviation system is a modern marvel, safely moving more people and goods than any other air system in the world. The rapid development of a first-class aviation industry has allowed travelers and businesses to traverse vast distances at a rate that would have seemed unthinkable a century ago. However, outdated and ineffective public policies have hindered the modernization of the nation’s aviation system to meet 21st Century needs, leaving our air traffic control system, airports, and regulatory framework stuck in the past. As Congress will soon address aviation policies in its reauthorization of the Federal Aviation Administration, lawmakers have an opportunity to enact pro-market reforms that can improve modernization, incentivize innovation, and provide consumers with more choices. Please join us for a timely and provocative discussion on the right way to address aviation for 2017 and beyond.
