May 21, 2021 | Press Releases

Miami, FL — U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), and Ron Wyden (D-OR) reintroduced legislation to establish the National Center for the Advancement of Aviation.
The National Center for the Advancement of Aviation would serve as a national, independent forum to facilitate collaboration and cooperation between all sectors of aviation and aerospace stakeholders and related partners, with a particular focus on aviation and aerospace workforce development. It would allow these sectors to coordinate, promote, and support the future of aviation and ensure that the United States remains a global aviation and aerospace leader.
“Florida’s aviation and space industries are critical to both the state’s economy and America’s national security interests,” Rubio said. “I’m proud to join Senator Inhofe and colleagues in reintroducing the National Center for the Advancement of Aviation Act, which would promote the continued innovation and growth of these industries.”
“As we continue to advance as a nation, we are in need of a center to address the demands and challenges associated with our growing aviation industry,” Inhofe said. “The National Center for the Advancement of Aviation will empower a collaborative process to promote aviation in the United States and enable the development of the next generation of aviation and aerospace workers. As a pilot myself, I am proud to continue to advocate for aviation stakeholders and introduce this bill today alongside Sens. Duckworth and Hyde-Smith to establish the NCAA.”
