Since the April 20 launch of AOPA’s GA Serves America campaign and the formation of the General Aviation Caucus by Reps. Allen Boyd (D-Fla.) and Vernon Ehlers (R-Mich.), the message that GA is an important economic asset and vital component of the transportation system is spreading throughout Congress.

In less than one month, 45 representatives have joined the caucus to help their colleagues better understand GA’s importance.

“This caucus provides a great opportunity to help educate members of Congress and their staff about the current issues facing AOPA members,” said AOPA Vice President of Legislative Affairs Lorraine Howerton. “It will help us in our efforts to protect general aviation on all fronts, including public perception, user fees, and security.”

It is important that the caucus gains support from as many members of Congress as possible. AOPA encourages members to see if their representative is a part of the caucus. If your representative is a member of the caucus, send him or her a note of thanks for taking a stand for GA. If your representative hasn’t signed up, let him or her know the value of joining this group. ( Get your representative's contact information.) Because GA supports more than a million jobs and $150 billion in economic activity, each representative’s district depends on the industry.
