As you all well know, the FAA Contract Tower (FCT) Program came under unprecedented attacks last year during the federal budget sequestration debate in Washington. It was only through the collective efforts of the U.S. Contract Tower Association (USCTA), airport operators, controllers, pilots and aviation users that we were ultimately successful in protecting the program and keeping contract towers open.
While Congress has provided funding to keep all contract towers operational through September 2014, challenges to the program remain real. Federal spending remains under tremendous pressure, and the Administration has made clear that it will continue to give the program close scrutiny.
USCTA remains actively engaged in protecting these critical air traffic control assets, but we need your help…again. Please consider making a small donation to USCTA to help us keep contract towers viable into the future by clicking on the Friends of the U.S. Contract Tower Association web link below. All donations will be utilized by USCTA to continue our collective advocacy efforts in Washington.
Thanks very much for your time and consideration!
