Jack Pelton Calls For Global Cooperation

Cessna CEO Jack Pelton told Australian audience a few weeks ago that the Regional Aviation Association of Australia (RAAA) convention are various commom threads to the problems facing business aviation everywhere.

"We have our work cut out for us – here in Australia, in the United States and around the globe," said Pelton. "Every region of the world has its own issues to deal with and each issue is complex, requiring dedicated and reasoned discussion among the principals."

He told the group that security and safety, airspace management modernization and the environment are the main issues facing the industry everywhere. He said the issues will certainly bring new regulations and the industry needs to work together to ensure governments craft laws that not only address the matters at hand but also consider the operational requirements of general aviation.
