The House of Representatives is planning a vote on H.R. 2997, the 21st Century AIRR Act, which would remove air traffic control from the FAA and turn it over to the airlines. Privatization would cost tens of billions of dollars and airlines could dictate policy at the expense of general aviation and rural communities. Additionally, costs would go up for every traveler, and a privatized ATC would be inherently “too-big-to fail” resulting in taxpayer bailouts.
In the past, the government has unsuccessfully tried to create non-profit, industry controlled monopolies like Amtrak and the Post Office – don’t let them do the same thing to our skies.
Please send a message to your representative, then call their office asking them to oppose HR 2997 and protect the freedom to fly.
You needn’t provide a detailed response, just state your opposition to the bill.
