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
For pilots, the 60,000-plus-member Civil Air Patrol readily comes to mind when an aerial role in a rescue is launched.
The basics haven’t changed—flying clubs are still a cost-effective way to fly and enjoy the company of your fellow aviators.
The Flying Musicians will appear at the upcoming 110th anniversary of powered flight celebration in North Carolina.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
