American business aviation operators at EBACE are delighted at news that a US judge has ruled that a December 2011 traffic stop for Randy Babbitt, prompting drunk-driving charges that led to the former FAA chief's resignation, was made without just cause.

NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen says: "For decades, Randy has been one of the most recognised and respected people in aviation. His contributions to the safety and efficiency of air transportation in the United States and around the world are significant. We are pleased that the matter that led to his resignation from the FAA is now closed. We wish him all the best in whatever his future plans may be and trust that the aviation community will benefit from his considerable talent, expertise and commitment."
