AAAE is widely recognized as one of the most effective advocacy groups in Washington.

Federal Affairs Membership

Airports must demonstrate continued vigilance in the pursuit of our aviation agenda in Washington, and your active participation is vital to that effort.

The AAAE Federal Affairs Membership supports the work of the Legislative, Transportation Security Policy and Regulatory departments in Washington on behalf of your airport and the aviation industry.

U.S. Contract Tower Association

The American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) created the U.S. Contract Tower Association in 1996 to promote FAA’s Contract Tower Program and to enhance aviation safety at smaller airports. USCTA coordinates contract tower issues on a regular basis with Congress, DOT/FAA, NTSB, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the DOT IG.
