Established in 2010, the NAC is tasked with exploring solutions to NextGen challenges involving concepts, requirements, operational capabilities and technologies. The NAC examines these considerations in support of the FAA’s ongoing modernization of the nation’s air traffic management system. Bolen is a longtime member of the government-industry group.
“Business aviation has long played an integral role in fostering the development of NextGen, and our industry remains committed to the implementation of these technologies to further increase the safety and efficiency of our nation’s ATC network,” Bolen said. “I am pleased to accept Secretary Chao’s invitation to continue on this key committee, building upon the significant progress already made toward modernizing the NAS.”
