    “In Illinois, general aviation and our network of airports support the livelihood of businesses, towns, cities, and farms across the state and country,” said Selena Shilad, executive director of the Alliance for Aviation Across America. “We thank Governor Pritzker for his leadership in recognizing the importance of general aviation and look forward to working with him and other leaders to support these aircraft and our network of airports.”
