4AIR launched PolicyWatch to tracks legislation and regulatory initiatives affecting business aviation. Designed specifically for business aviation, PolicyWatch provides visibility into aviation’s complex and fast-changing legislative environment, giving aircraft owners, operators and other industry participants insight into proposed and forthcoming requirements and how to meet them. PolicyWatch joins 4AIR’s existing, free-to-use online suite of tools, which includes Aviation Fuel Carbon Calculator, the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Reduction Estimator and the Business Aviation SAF Map.

Kennedy Ricci, President of 4AIR, commented: “The list of legislative, regulatory and corporate reporting requirements that will directly or indirectly affect aviation operators is growing with unprecedented speed. PolicyWatch keeps aviation operators informed of new legislation and pending requirements that might affect them or their customers, outlines their potential impacts and reveals when they are expected to go into effect. This is part of our expertise and reinforces our existing regulatory compliance and reporting service.”

PolicyWatch is not meant to be an exhaustive look at what aviation entities need to consider, but rather is intended to more clearly help operators, brokers and other aviation entities stay informed of potential legislation that might affect their reporting, their operations or even their customers’ needs. In addition to delivering information business decision-makers need, PolicyWatch includes summaries of pending legislation, their status within the legislative process, key deadlines and referential links to the full content of the legislation.

Examples of the kind of government initiatives PolicyWatch monitors include the emerging indirect emissions reporting requirements at the state and federal levels. These could require aviation companies or their clients to provide expanded documentation and disclosures about their emissions. “New regulations could create reporting burdens for you even if your company is not directly affected by the rules. Your clients could fall under new reporting obligations and, therefore, need additional or expanded documentation to meet those requirements,” said Ricci. “PolicyWatch will keep you abreast of the evolving regulatory landscape as it affects you, your clients and the industry.”

The legislation tracker is the latest example of how 4AIR provides resources to keep business aviation informed, educated and able to respond ahead of emerging obligations.
