Representative Jim Holm State Capitol, Room 110 Juneau, AK 99801-1182
Dear Representative Holm,
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) is a membership association consisting of over 400,000 pilots and aircraft owners nationwide, 4,600 of whom reside in the State of Alaska. AOPA is committed to ensuring the continued viability, growth, and development of aviation and airports in Alaska and the United States.
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association strongly supports House Bill 474, regarding civil liability relating to runways, airfields, and landing areas. This bill will help protect airport owner and operators that devote their time and resources to operate and maintain airstrips and landing areas in Alaska.
We anticipate that this bill will help protect the operation of these vital components of our transportation infrastructure.
On behalf of the 4,600 AOPA members in Alaska, thank you for sponsoring this bill.
Tom George Alaska Regional Representative
AOPA expressed concern in a meeting with town officials from East Hampton, New York, that restrictions proposed to curb airport noise “overwhelmingly” generated by transient commercial flights would unfairly burden traditional airport users.
