AIA Welcomes Confirmation of Steve Dickson as FAA Administrator

Statement by Aerospace Industries Association President and CEO Eric Fanning

Arlington, Va. —Today’s Senate confirmation of Steve Dickson as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Administrator is an important step that will strengthen the agency’s ability to ensure American air safety, invest in critical infrastructure, and implement regulation that keeps the flying public safe and supports new and emerging technologies.

In today’s quickly evolving aviation environment, government and industry have vital roles to play in ensuring the United States continues to lead the world in safety and innovation. We look forward to working with Administrator Dickson on accomplishing just that.

Since the beginning of 2018, FAA has been ably led by Dan Elwell as the Acting Administrator and we urge the Congress to act quickly in approving a waiver to allow him to return to his duties as the Deputy Administrator.
