First Meeting Set for Future of Aviation Advisory Committee

DOT's headquarters in Washington, D.C., is the location for the May 25 meeting, which will be open to the public.

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced that the first meeting of the Future of Aviation Advisory Committee will take place May 25 at DOT offices in Washington, D.C., and will be open to the public. The committee was established to offer advice and recommendations to the secretary of Transportation to ensure the competitiveness of the U.S. aviation industry and its ability to manage evolving transportation needs and challenges, including ensuring safe operations. -- a concern brought sharply to mind by the May 12 crash of Afriqiyah Airways Flight 771 on approach to Tripoli International Airport in Libya, inbound from Johannesburg, South Africa, at 6 a.m. local time. One hundred passengers and crew are reported dead, with a 10-year-old child the sole survivor, according to reports early Wednesday. The Libyan airline operates Airbus jets exclusively.

Subsequent FAAC meetings will take place July 14, Aug. 25, Oct. 20, and Dec. 15, although work groups may meet more frequently. The committee's charter and minutes of its meetings will be available at www.regulations.gov in docket number DOT-OST-2010-0074 or at http://www.dot.gov/faac.

To register, e-mail FAAC@dot.gov under the subject line "Registration" and provide last name, first name, title, company or affiliation, address, phone number, and e-mail address so DOT can confirm registration.
