FAA Focuses on Global Leadership

On April 7, the FAA hosted the 4th Annual Global Leadership Meeting at Gallaudet University. The conference consisted of two panels: regional directors providing observations on recent trends and industry representatives sharing insights into the struggles facing certificate holders.

Discussions included Brexit and the proliferation of open skies legislation as well as cyber security, the pace of technological innovation and lagging regulatory systems. While none of these issues would be solved in a single meeting, one thing was clear: Maintaining open lines of communication and engaging regulators is key future growth and success.
