The Alliance for Aviation Across America Reaches 4,000 Members

As 2009 draws near, we would like to alert our members to our newest milestone; we have eclipsed the 4,000 member mark with the addition of The National Farmers Organization (NFO). In joining the Alliance, NFO has become part of a diverse and dedicated coalition that understands the importance of general aviation and is dedicated to protecting small and rural communities. As we continue to grow, we provide more and more examples of the true benefits of general aviation.

The Alliance for Aviation Across America welcomes the new year, and looks forward to working with you all over the next year to increase awareness about general aviation and protect the small towns and communities that rely on small aircraft.
