NAC future bodes well under continued Bolen guidance
Established in 2010, the NAC is tasked with exploring solutions to next-gen challenges involving concepts, requirements, operational capabilities and technologies. Ed Bolen continues to be an integral member.

NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen has been reappointed to the NextGen Advisory Committee (NAC), where he will continue to represent business aviation. Established by US Department of Transportation, the NAC focuses on efforts to modernise the national airspace system (NAS).

“Your experience and leadership have added valuable insights and perspectives that will help further NAC's mission,” writes US DOT Secretary Elaine Chao in appointing Bolen to another term of up to two years. “Thank you for continuing to contribute your time and expertise as an integral member of this important organisation.”

Established in 2010, the NAC is tasked with exploring solutions to next-generation challenges involving concepts, requirements, operational capabilities and technologies. It examines these considerations in support of the FAA's ongoing modernisation of the nation's air traffic management system. Bolen is a long-time 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 says. “I am pleased to accept Secretary Chao's invitation to continue on this key committee, building upon the significant progress already made toward modernising the NAS.”

The NAC currently provides input to the FAA and DOT on topics related to data communications, multiple runway operations, surface and data sharing, performance-based navigation and airspace optimisation across the Northeast Corridor.
