FAA COMSTAC Meeting Today

Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee–Open Meeting (agenda)
“The meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the National Transportation Safety Board Conference Center, 429 L’Enfant Plaza SW., Washington, DC 20594. This will be the 61st meeting of the COMSTAC.”
Keith’s note: The meeting is supposed to be webcast at http://faa.capitolconnection.org/ but it says that it will not start at 1 pm ET even though the meeting began at 8 am ET with a presentation by NASA Administrator Bolden. So … half of the meeting is not being webcast. Odd.
Keith’s update: FAA responded that the morning is just working group meetings so it won’t be webcast. Yet Charlie Bolden just spoke. Is he in a working group? This is a bit of a bait and switch since the original agenda FAA sent us late last week (and had on their website) had NASA Administrator Bolden, FAA AA Nield, and Rep. Fattah as speakers. Again, are they working group members? Further, the FAA webpage says the webcast starts at 1:00 pm ET yet their agenda shows a start at 1:30 pm ET. Also – there is no indication that the afternoon is a full committee meeting. (Needlessly) Confusing.
