CAA joined a group of aviation stakeholders in a letter to Congressional leaders in the Senate Commerce and House Transportation and Infrastructure Committees to share its priorities to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions in aviation.
The aviation industry has a strong record of addressing its environmental impact and is committed to bold and significant steps to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To effectively address the climate change challenge, we must drive technology, infrastructure and operational advances faster and farther. This ambitious undertaking will require industry, consumers and governments to work in partnership to take decisive action to enable innovation and incentivize scale-up, cost-competitiveness and deployment in these critical areas.
These proposals focus in four key areas:
- Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) development, production and distribution
- Low/no emission technologies deployment
- Aviation environmental research and development; and
- Air traffic management modernization.
