FAA Program Takes Flight

National -- In an effort to increase the number of minority- and women-owned firms it contracts with, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has created a pilot program that pairs prime contractors with small firms in the aviation industry.

Operating through 1999, the FAA Mentor-Protégé Program teams certified small businesses with one of the following three prime contractors: Booz·Allen & Hamilton Inc., FDC Technologies Inc. and Science Applications International Corp. The mentors are looking for firms that will complement their products and services and who want a long-term relationship.
