One of the airline industry’s top regulators is set to speak at the Aviation Club UK on 15 June. Michael Huerta runs the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the US, and is responsible for the safety and efficiency of the world’s largest aerospace system.
His talk, just days after the general election, is expected to touch on the relationship between the US, the UK, and Europe and how the global aviation system is evolving at a pace not seen since the dawn of the jet age.
Huerta will also discuss other timely aviation topics, from the regulation and integration of drones to the importance of effective international co-operation.
Club chairman Jane Johnston said: "It is a breakthrough for the club to attract such a key international figure to address us, particularly given other major events taking place at the same time.
Huerta said: “From the earliest days of aviation, the UK has been a strong advocate for safety and innovation. The US is fortunate to count the UK as one of its most stalwart international partners, and I am looking forward to visiting with the members of the Aviation Club UK in June.”
