Recent reports of a proposal to expand operations of ride-sharing companies in the state could create considerable benefits for the tens of millions of passengers who use our airports every year.

NYAMA Urges State and Local Governments to Work Cautiously and Cooperatively with the FAA on Drone Regulation

Albany, NY, September 15, 2016 – Emphasizing the importance of emerging drone technology to New York’s aviation industry and the state’s overall economic health, the Board of Directors of the New York Aviation Management Association (NYAMA) today urged governments to exercise caution and work cooperatively with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on the regulation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), often referred to as drones.  

“UAVs are here to stay, and NYAMA is committed to ensuring this technology and its practically limitless applications across many disciplines are safely integrated into the airspace system,” outgoing NYAMA President Jeremy P. Martelle and incoming NYAMA President John DelBalso said in a joint statement as NYAMA launched its 40th Annual Fall Conference in Long Island.

It's Official -- Governor Signs AJA into Law

It's an historic occasion for the aviation industry in New York! Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the New York Aviation Jobs Act (AJA) into law. Chapter 50 of the Laws of 2015 was signed on Monday. April 13, 2015. The tax exemption will serve as a vital economic development tool that will put New York on par with other states and will benefit the entire state by attracting more taxable aviation-related activities to our state.

The AJA passage is a culmination of many years of effort by NYAMA and we extend thanks to all involved, both past and present. Thank you to the Aviation Caucus, led by Caucus Chairs NY Senator Phil Boyle and NY Assemblymember Donna Lupardo. Additional thanks to NY Senator William Larkin for his work as the former Aviation Caucus Co-Chair.

Additional thanks to the many NYAMA members have worked tirelessly on this effort, including all who wrote letters, met with elected officials, developed partnerships and participated in Advocacy Days throughout the last 10 years.
