FORT WORTH, Texas – The Allied Pilots Association (APA), representing the 16,000 pilots of American Airlines, praised Congress for approving the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2024.

“This legislation will help ensure our nation’s airlines can continue meeting unprecedented travel demand while upholding the highest standards of safety,” said APA President Capt. Ed Sicher. “The U.S. airline industry isn’t just the world’s largest — it’s also the world’s safest — and we look forward to building on our proud legacy as the global leader in aviation safety.

“On behalf of the 16,000 American Airlines pilots the Allied Pilots Association represents, I want to express our gratitude to House and Senate leadership for their skillful handling of this landmark legislation,” Capt. Sicher said. “The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2024 includes provisions to augment staffing in our industry, strengthen pilot training requirements, and ensure fair treatment of pilot mental health issues to encourage self-disclosure, to cite just a few of its many beneficial aspects.

“We respectfully request that President Biden promptly sign the legislation into law and look forward to seeing its many long-awaited enhancements to our National Airspace System become a reality.”
