The flag at AOPA headquarters flies at half-staff today, as AOPA members and all of America reflect upon the tragedy that struck the nation on September 11.
"Our thoughts today are with those who have lost loved ones," said AOPA President Phil Boyer. "And our efforts are dedicated to protecting our nation from future terrorist attack while still preserving the freedom of mobility that is much a part of what it means to be an American."
In the six months since the attack, AOPA has worked closely with federal transportation and security officials to responsibly restore the nation's aviation system while maintaining reasonable security. AOPA continues to offer constructive help to ensure that our general aviation airports are secure and that only authorized pilots have access to aircraft.
