  • "Fiscal cliff" could affect air travel service, acting FAA chief says
    The aviation industry may be forced to implement spending cuts if the U.S. economy goes over the fiscal cliff, this feature says. Funding cuts at the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Security Administration would likewise lead to a decline in service from these agencies. "These cuts would impact air traffic control services, NextGen implementation and aircraft certification -- all of which are critical to our ability to move forward with aviation in this century. They would result in significantly less efficient and less convenient air travel service for the American traveling public," said acting FAA Administrator Michael Huerta.
