Keep air traffic control public and vote!

Action 1: Keep air traffic control public

A bill has been unveiled in the House implementing Trump’s proposal to privatize air traffic control. While the bill faces a competing Senate bill in which the Federal Aviation Administration retains authority over air traffic control, it is unclear which bill will prevail. Privatization could open the door for undue influence from large airlines.

Write to your congresspeople to oppose privatization. The Experimental Aircraft Association has a helpful webpage that selects your officials and gives you a script:
