The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides a total of $5B in funding ($1B per year over five years) to upgrade the foundation of the FAA’s air traffic control. Think of it as a down payment to reduce our backlog of needed maintenance, updates, upgrades and replacement of critical buildings and equipment needed to operate our nation’s airspace safely. The work at buildings and equipment around the country will create jobs for local suppliers, construction workers and communities.
The FAA controls more than 5 million square miles of airspace in the U.S. and more than 24 million square miles over oceans. The air traffic system includes towers at airports and terminal approach control facilities, which provide services to aircraft approaching and leaving busy airspace. It also includes 22 centers handling aircraft at high altitudes. These facilities depend on power systems, navigation and weather equipment, and radar and surveillance systems across the country.
