September 17, 2009

This video clip captures a segment run by NBC’s Today show, which took a gratuitous and uninformed slap at general aviation and small community airports. The September 17, 2009 edition of USA Today published a companion piece. NBAA issued a statement underscoring the value of all general aviation – including business aviation – to the nation’s citizens, companies and communities. NBAA issued a letter to the producers, editors and reporters involved in the anti-general aviation article.

Review the NBAA statement and letter.
