The FAAC Subcommittee on Labor and World-class Workforce is studying commercial aviation workforce issues.

Panel Studying Needs of Aviation's Future Workforce

The Sept. 23 meeting at JFK International Airport, part of a project evaluating skills needed and the impact of DOT's Next Generation Air Transportation System, has limited space for the public.

Ensuring the people who work in the U.S. aviation industry in coming years are fully equipped for their jobs is the goal of the FAAC Subcommittee on Labor and World-class Workforce, which will hold its next meeting Sept. 23 at the JetBlue Airways Hangar at John F. Kennedy International Airport. The panel's task is to study commercial aviation workforce issues, including three that will affect the industry's future employment requirements:

  • the need for science, technology, engineering, and math skills
  • the creation of a culture of dignity and respect in the workplace
  • the impact of NextGen, the Next Generation Air Transportation System, on various workforces

NextGen is a major update of commercial air traffic control, switching it to a satellite-based system expected to increase capacity while reducing delays, fuel consumption, carbon emissions, and noise. DOT is scheduled to spend $9.6 billion on it by 2015, FAA Administrator J. Randolph Babbitt said in a May 2010 speech.

The meeting can accommodate as many as 100 members of the public. To pre-register, send an e-mail to with "Registration: Labor/Workforce" in the subject line.
