AOPA to build state aviation caucus

AOPA knows there's power in numbers. That's why your association's government affairs staff always makes it a point to tell federal elected leaders just how many members we have - nearly 410,000. Now AOPA is working to increase its effectiveness at the state level by forming a state aviation caucus of elected officials who are AOPA members, pilots, or general aviation advocates. "While federal issues often have a higher profile, AOPA works hard to protect aviation interests on the state and local levels," said Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of regional affairs. "We encourage AOPA members to let us know if they have an elected official who is a pilot. AOPA members who are state legislators or local officials should contact us to let us know their position and join the caucus." (A caucus is an ad hoc group within a legislative body representing a specific area of interest or policy.)
