Helicopter Association International (HAI) says Federal Aviation Association (FAA) Acting Administrator Daniel K. Elwell is scheduled to attend HAI HELI-EXPO 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 5, 2019.
Administrator Elwell will participate in a “fireside chat” with HAI president and CEO Matthew Zuccaro, where they will discuss a selection of topics relevant to the helicopter industry. This conversation will take place at HAI’s Annual Membership Meeting and Breakfast.
Those who are interested in viewing the discussion but who are unable to attend the meeting can view the event through live streaming on HAI’s Facebook page. Other live streaming sites may become available too.
“We are grateful that Administrator Elwell can take time from his busy schedule to attend HAI HELI-EXPO and address issues that are significant to us,” says Zuccaro. “This is a pivotal time in aviation, with a number of challenges, such as workforce development and the integration of unmanned aircraft systems and autonomous flight into the NAS. Being able to hear from the FAA Administrator on these and other safety, regulatory, and operational issues is a huge help to the helicopter community. We deeply appreciate the contributions of Administrator Elwell and several other FAA representatives to our show.”
The discussion between Administrator Elwell and Mr. Zuccaro is scheduled to begin at approximately 8:30 AM (EST) and will last 15 – 20 minutes. Elwell is also participating in the ribbon-cutting ceremony to open HAI HELI-EXPO at 10:15 AM.
Because of his responsibilities leading the FAA, Administrator Elwell’s schedule is subject to change without notice.
