A few notes on the fine mess that our elected leaders have created for our industry's regulator and those put out of work by the political gamesmanship:FAA leveraged social media as part of its internal and external outreach in the days leading up to the furlough. The agency's last statement before the midnight power-down referenced both the agency's Facebook and Twitter pages as primary sources for updates....Among those hit by our elected leaders' decision to cripple FAA include some 640 employees at FAA's William J. Hughes Technical Center. The list of projects those "non-essential" folks were knee-deep in until Friday midnight includes this one....Also inconvenienced by the FAA shutdown (a list headed, of course, by the 4,000-odd hard-working folks who have an unplanned, unpaid vacation) are Boeing and its 747-8 launch customers, as this Seattle Times story explains. Five U.S. airports that Atlas Air and Cargolux want to serve with their new aircraft aren't yet certified to take the new freighter; teams from FAA and Boeing were slated to visit the airports this coming week. As old friend and current Boeing spokesman Jim Proulx said, "It's Congress' responsibility to reauthorize the FAA," said Proulx. "We look to them to do that as soon as possible."Indeed we do.
