Monthly Briefing: Federal Aviation Administration’s Next Generation Air Transportation System - Small Business Update

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is focused on providing the safest and most efficient aerospace system in the world.   Join us to gain insight into the all-important multibillion-dollar Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) program.  This initiative will play a critical role in the modernization of the US National Airspace System (NAS) through the implementation of new technologies and capabilities that will increase the safety, efficiency, capacity, predictability, and resiliency of American Aviation. 

In addition to gaining insight into this NAS modernization initiative, the FAA’s Small Business Office will provide advice and resource guidance on how the small business community can best position themselves to support FAA opportunities.
