Citizens For On Time Flights supports bill to modernize air traffic control system

Citizens for On Time Flights has announced that 17 members of the New Jersey State Legislature, nine mayors and ten business associations — including four chambers of commerce — have written letters to US Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Representatives Rodney P. Frelinghuysen (NJ-11) and Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) to declare their support for reforms to modernize the nation´s outdated and inefficient air traffic control (ATC) system, the group said.

Elected officials from both sides of the aisle support a bipartisan proposal before Congress that would restructure the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and move oversight of ATC operations to a federally chartered, independent, non-profit organization that includes all aviation stakeholders.

The FAA would continue to ensure the safety of all fliers.
