H.R 2997 - A bill to privatize the nation’s air traffic control (ATC) system
H.R. 2997, the 21st Century AIRR Act seeks to privatize the air traffic control system and reduce general aviation access to airports and airspace. Based on every metric, the U.S. has the largest, most diverse, most complex and safest airspace system in the world. All stakeholders have fair and equitable access to our airspace, which is not the case in certain countries with privatized ATC systems. Complete the online form to tell your elected officials to say no to H.R. 2997 and yes to fair and equal access for all stakeholders. You will be able to review and edit this message before it is sent.
Remind Congress that our airspace belongs to the public and should be run for the public's benefit, not a few special interests.
Send tweets to your elected officials asking them to oppose H.R. 2997 plans to hand ATC to a private board.
