COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NetJets Association of Shared Aircraft Pilots (NJASAP) President Pedro Leroux issued the following statement in response to U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao's confirmation earlier this afternoon:
"The NetJets Association of Shared Aircraft Pilots (NJASAP) is pleased to congratulate U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao on her confirmation to President Trump's cabinet. With decades of transportation experience to her credit, the Association views Chao as having the necessary expertise and understanding of a foundational American industry to spearhead the massive infrastructure improvements the president promised throughout his campaign. Certainly, a significant part of that is making sure the National Airspace Systems remains the most efficient, reliable and safe air transportation system in the world. NJASAP believes this requires her and her department to protect the industry, the middle-class Americans who work in its employ and the flying public from foreign interests who threaten its viability and safety. We are optimistic, based on her demonstrated commitment to smart, sustainable transportation policy, she will see the wisdom of doing just that."
Established in 2008 as an independent labor advocate, NJASAP represents the professional interests of the 2,700-plus pilots who fly in the service of NetJets Aviation, Inc. For more information, visit our web site, www.njasap.com, Facebook page, www.facebook.com/njasap, or Twitter feed, @njasap.
