Aviation is vital to the economic stability of the Palmetto State and the quality of life of its people. To recognize that, Gov. Mark Sanford issued a proclamation declaring Oct. 7 through 12 South Carolina Aviation Week.
AOPA Southeast Regional Representative Bob Minter worked with the South Carolina Aviation Association (SCAA) to provide educational materials to send to each of the 62 public-use airports to help promote general aviation throughout the state. This includes AOPA's latest DVD Local Airports: Access to America, used nationwide by AOPA Airport Support Network volunteers to build public appreciation for local airports. Distributing this type of information about GA is important as Congress debates FAA funding.
South Carolina has six commercial service airports, 54 GA airports, and four military airfields that are essential to the Palmetto State's diversified business base, growing population, and extensive tourism industry.
