KULR: FAA Commits to Safety Around Powder River Training Complex

The Federal Aviation Administration commits to ensuring air safety around the Powder River Training Complex.

The organization approved expansion of the training complex for B-1 Bombers in March.

All three members of our congressional delegation continue to express concern about the expansion.

FAA Administrator Michael Huerta told Senator Steve Daines on Tuesday the organization will continue to work to make the skies in southeastern Montana safe and secure.

Sen. Daines said to Huerta, "I'd like to get your commitment to continue to work with the local airports and stakeholders to provide the appropriate communications and radar equipment necessary to endure a high level of aviation safety?" Huerta responded by saying, "We will certainly continue to work with the community, this is something that we've spent a lot time really trying to understand and discussions with local stakeholders and users there."
