    U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood made a surprise appearance at the Meet the Administrator forum with FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt Thursday at AirVenture. LaHood, who was making his first visit to AirVenture as transportation secretary, told the standing room only crowd that he wanted to be at the show to “support GA.”

    “The Department of Transportation cares about what you do and about Oshkosh,” he said. “GA is absolutely an important part of our aviation system in this country and around the world.”

    In his short remarks, LaHood said he was “delighted” to be at the show and wanted to give all pilots encouragement to “keep on keeping on.” “I know how important what you do is,” he said. “I will continue to make sure your flag of honor flies high at the Department of Transportation.”
