Esty proposes FAA Women in Aviation Advisory Board

5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty has introduced bipartisan legislation to allow the Federal Aviation Administration to establish a Women in Aviation Advisory Board. The board would promote organizations and programs providing education, training, mentorship, outreach, and recruitment of women into the aviation industry.  Less than ten percent of airline mechanics, flight engineers, repair personnel, and airline pilots are women, and women comprise just over a quarter of air traffic controllers.  Aviation industry groups and business leaders are concerned that this shortfall could lead to trouble filling spots as more workers retire.  Esty says women bring new perspectives, skills, backgrounds, and problem solving skills to the table.
