NATA is well represented in key industry bodies
Steve Berry and John McGraw will fly the flag for the National Air Transportation Association by serving on the Energy Institute's Aviation Committee and the Aviation Security Advisory Committee respectively.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has announced the 33 members who will serve on its Aviation Security Advisory Committee (ASAC), including a two-year reappointment of John McGraw, National Air Transportation Association (NATA) VP of regulatory affairs. McGraw has represented aviation businesses as a member of the ASAC for seven years.

“The ASAC serves a critical need for stakeholders to advise the TSA Administrator and the Secretary of Homeland Security of current and emerging aviation security issues. It is crucial that the voice of aviation business is heard in the development of aviation security policy,” he states.

The ASAC is a stakeholder advisory committee established in 1989 to develop, refine and implement aviation security policies, programmes, rulemaking and directives. The committee consists of 34 members from across 19 sectors, including general aviation interests such as airport-based businesses, airport operators, aircraft manufacturers and aeronautical repair stations.​​​​

Meanwhile Steve Berry, manager of fuel quality and safety for NATA, has been appointed to the Energy Institute's (EI) Aviation Committee, whose work is essential for the safety of over 100,000 daily air passenger flights across the globe. The EI's Aviation Committee is responsible for creating and maintaining international specifications and publications for aviation fuel filtration, equipment, operations, hydrant systems and supply chain fuel quality.

“We're excited and honoured to have Steve represent NATA and its members at the international level,” states NATA senior vice president Ryan Waguespack. “As an EI Aviation Committee member, Steve will continue the collaborative efforts between NATA and EI through his work on our General Aviation Fuel Handling Subcommittee.”

The NATA General Aviation Fuel Handling Subcommittee was formed in 2019 to provide US general and business aviation industry input to EI's Aviation Committee, as well as technical expertise, industry guidance, and operational best practices to NATA members.

The Energy Institute is a not-for-profit chartered professional membership body bringing together expertise across industries to tackle urgent global energy challenges.
