Iowa members are invited to take part in a rare opportunity - meet with AOPA President Phil Boyer, Rep. Leonard Boswell (D-Iowa), and aviation subcommittee Chairman Rep. Jerry Costello (D-Ill.) to discuss user fees and the latest developments in the FAA funding debate. "This is your chance to share your thoughts on FAA funding with two key congressmen and influence the process," said Boyer. The public meeting will take place at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, June 4, at Ankeny Regional Airport in Ankeny. You have a chance of winning one of three AOPA watches from Sporty's just for being there. AOPA will also be hosting a fundraising reception for Rep. Boswell to help keep one of general aviation's best friends in Congress. Learn more about both events.
