This article highlights key provisions of the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization Act of 2018, which President Trump signed into law on October 5. The act funds the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) through 2023. The act did not include a controversial proposal to privatize US air traffic control, proposed restrictions on "flag of convenience" carriers or further restrictions on aircraft registration procedures. The article analyzes three notable sections of the act that prohibit mobile phone in-flight communication, immunize lessor and passive finance parties from liability in passenger state law tort claims, and address the need for airline seat size standards.
