Administrator at Air & Space Law Meeting Warns of Grim Outlook for FAA if Sequestered

Michael P. Huerta, administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, warns that the FAA faces budget cuts of nearly $627 million, which could result in up to 90-minute flight delays at some major airports, closure of 230 air traffic control towers and furlough days for agency employees, if Congress is unable to reach an agreement before the sequester.

Huerta spoke Feb. 27 during the _ Forum on Air and Space Law’s 2013 Update Conference in Washington, D.C.
