July 2010

GREETINGS! First, Here is an update from Washington, D.C. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) orders that all operators subject to the Twelve-Five Standard Security Program (TFSSP) revalidate access for all users of the program's Webboard. Agency says the revalidation process for access to the secure Webboards is ongoing and that once complete all watch lists will be placed in a new Webboard. TSA expects this new system to launch on June 21, 2010.

Secondly, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issues its final rule outlining equipment requirements for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B), requiring all aircraft that fly in Class A, B, and C airspace and above 10,000 feet to be equipped with ADS-B by 2020.

Thirdly, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awards three separate NextGen contracts totaling up to $4.4 billion over ten years. Boeing, General Dynamics, and ITT were awarded the contracts that are part of System Engineering 2020. Two more contracts are expected under SE2020, which has a ceiling of $7 billion, making it the largest set of awards ever by the FAA.

None at present

Note: Here's your web site address for Texas Legislation:
Look for Transportation-Aviation, to search all Aviation Bills.

Note: Here's your web site address for Illinois Legislation:
Look for Transportation-Aviation, to search all Aviation Bills.

All other states should follow this same format, to search your specific state's aviation and airport bills.

Remember, that as members of USPA, MPA, TPA, TXAA, NMPA, NPA, IPA, EAA, AOPA, or other pilot associations of which you may be a member, we have a powerful voice, in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Texas, or whatever state you may represent. Every group of taxpayers and pilots carries a strong voice to Washington, D.C., as well as at the state and local level.
We need to learn how to use our voices, and speak up for general aviation.

So Let's not forget to exercise our privileges, and continue to make a "Difference for General Aviation."
