Senate GA Champion Reminds Colleagues of Industry's Value
Feb 10, 2012
As the people in the business aviation community know well, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) has long been a champion for all general aviation, including business aviation. The senator re-affirmed that support last week in floor remarks he made during the debate over a bill for reauthorizing the Federal Aviation Administration. His comments reflected the themes of the No Plane No Gain advocacy campaign. "This industry [general aviation] contributes over $150 billion to the national economy each year, and has created over 1.3 million jobs – if anyone wants to talk about job creation, this is the outfit that does it – across a broad range of disciplines. And it allows companies the ability to access all facilities all across the globe."
