Model Letter/Talking Points for a DZO

Dear Representative,

As a constituent, and the owner of a skydiving business that is required to use the FAA’s air traffic control system, I am opposed to the proposal contained in HR 2997 that would create a new non-profit corporation to take over the air traffic control function of the FAA. My skydiving aircraft are required by regulation to be in contact with ATC on every flight, but unlike the FAA’s current ATC system, a privatized ATC system will not ensure fairness of service among all aviation users, including skydiving flights. My skydiving business brings activity and revenues to my airport, but ATC-induced delays will have a dramatic negative effect on my skydiving business and on the airport where I am based. I ask you to oppose the ATC privatization provision of HR 2997.

Sincerely,

[Your Full Name]
