Monday Afternoon - Sept. 17th/GA VFR Still Banned

As of Monday afternoon GA VFR activity remains banned. SSA has been in contact with FAA management and with other aviation groups. Unfortunately, the information remains limited. There is no clear understanding as to when we can look for a resumption of activity. FAA managers are well aware of our issues and are working hard to meet the multitude of requests for information. It remains important to recognize that FAA and DOT do not call the shots on these decisions. The law enforcement and intelligence agencies remain in the main seat as far as flight decisions are concerned. SSA will work with FAA and DOT to reach positive conclusions as soon as possible bearing in mind the need for greater security in the national airspace system. The issues are difficult but they can be resolved.
