Tomorrow: Forbes to Chair Hearing on Future of Naval Aviation and the Carrier Air Wing

 

Washington, D.C. – Congressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04), Chairman of the House Armed Services Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, will chair a hearing on the “Carrier Air Wing and the Future of Naval Aviation” on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 3:30 PM.

 

“Following closely on the heels of the President’s FY2017 budget request, this hearing will provide critical food for thought as Congress considers the Navy’s plans for UCLASS, CBARS, F/A-18, F-35, and inactivating a carrier air wing. I remain concerned about the shortfalls we see in naval aviation, and look forward to hearing from our expert witnesses what they think the future should hold.”

 

WHAT: House Armed Services Seapower and Projection Forces hearing on the “Carrier Air Wing and the Future of Naval Aviation.”

 

WHO: Dr. Seth Cropsey, Director, Center for American Seapower, The Hudson Institute; Dr. Michael C. Horowitz, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania; and Mr. Robert Rubel, Professor Emeritus, U.S. Naval War College.

 

WHEN: Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 3:30 PM.

 

WHERE: 2212 Rayburn House Office Building.
