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
A new FAA policy on obstructive sleep apnea that addresses many of the concerns raised by AOPA is scheduled to take effect March 2.
AOPA and the National Business Aviation Association have jointly filed an amicus, or friend of the court, brief in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals as part of the ongoing legal battle over the future of Santa Monica Municipal Airport.
AOPA worked with the flight training industry and FAA to quickly resolve a problem that suddenly put many rating applications on hold.
