  • There are now 200 including 6 from North Carolina. Last week, the Alliance for Aviation Across America (AAAA) along with other major aviation organizations, announced that the House General Aviation Caucus has reached a milestone of 200 Members of Congress. This represents significant support in Congress for general aviation, and helps to raise awareness about the $150 billion in economic activity and 1.2 million American jobs that are supported by this industry. Among the 200 are 6 representatives from North Carolina including Virginia Foxx of the 5th District here in Wilkes, Howard Coble 6th District, Patrick McHenrty of the 10th, Mike McIntyre of the 7th, Mark Meadows of the 11th, and David Price of the 4th District. “I am encouraged by the steady growth of the General Aviation Caucus and its continuing commitment to educate Congress on the many benefits of General Aviation, while keeping watch to prevent overly burdensome regulations and laws which could negatively affect the lifesaving services…,” said Matthew Zuccaro, President of Helicopter Association International (HAI).
