COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The NetJets Association of Shared Aircraft Pilots (NJASAP) is very pleased to commend House Transportation and Infrastructure Ranking Member Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., and Aviation subcommittee Chair Frank LoBiondo, R-NJ, for introducing the bipartisan 'HR 2150 Flags of Convenience Don't Fly Here Act.' This vital legislation will protect millions of hard-working Americans employed in the aviation industry from the same catastrophic flags of convenience scheme that decimated the maritime industry.
Throughout their careers as public officials, DeFazio and LoBiondo have worked with single-minded determination to protect American workers. This latest effort will ensure foreign interests are not gifted a stake in the domestic aviation marketplace and an uneven playing field is allowed to take shape that makes it impossible for U.S. carriers to compete in the international market. Combined, these factors put a vital American industry and the men and women who work in its employ in danger of losing good-paying, middle class jobs. The DeFazio-LoBiondo legislation takes a definitive step in that direction.
NJASAP and our aviation labor peers look forward to the prompt passage of this critical piece of bipartisan legislation."
