“ We are ecstatic with the performance of the EMAS installation, 34 people are alive today because of it.” Richard Atkinson III, Director, Yeager Airport

 . . . we know that the Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) played an important role and I was glad to be part of getting it funded and built at Yeager.” Jay Rockefeller, Senator, West Virginia

“ The real dividend here is that 34 people are walking around and healthy because of that investment.” Randy Babbitt, FAA Administrator

“ There is no reason . . . any airport that doesn’t have an adjacent safety area wouldn’t have an arrestor bed.” - Jim Hall, former NTSB Chairman
