The EC  has finally adopted an agenda for integrating general and business aviation into EU air transport policy. The EBAA has been campaigning for
inclusion since its inception. The agenda was set after the Commission conducted
a thorough study of the sector, quantified its value and identified its
challenges.

Now, the Commission will now focus on high priority measures
such as improving data gathering, the screening of legislation to
ensure proportionality, and integrating general and business aviation
into capacity optimisation initiatives.

The EBAA
is encouraged, but the real work is only beginning.
