Klein, Levanto Complete Hour-Long European Tour

On Jan. 23, ARSA’s Christian A. Klein and Brett Levanto briefed the Embassy Aviation Attaches Assembly at the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Washington, D.C. The body, which meets regularly, is composed of policy representatives from the embassies of 35 countries as well as delegates from EASA and the European Commission (EC).

The ARSA team was invited to review and lead discussion on key issues facing the international aviation community. In their presentation, Klein and Levanto reviewed the state of the global industry, highlighted key points raised by ARSA members through the association’s various surveys and then helped delegates explore matters related to the 2018 FAA reauthorization law, international regulatory coordination, tariffs, Brexit and the partial shutdown of the U.S. federal government.

Taking advantage of Washington’s centrality to international aviation issues, the assembly provides a venue for the association to share insight and receive feedback from international government representatives in a personal setting. An ARSA team last addressed the body in 2014 related to the association’s efforts to assist the FAA with a congressionally-mandated rulemaking regarding international drug and alcohol testing. By continuing as a trusted source for information, the association renewed its value to the group whose members typically rotate off to other assignments every three to five years.
