Urgent Help Needed

Hello, DVPA Members,

You may be aware of the effort in Congress to remove Air Traffic Control and much of the air navigational infrastructure of our country from the FAA and turn it over to a private corporation. This is known as House Bill HR2997.  Many believe that this change would be exceptionally damaging to General Aviation due to the makeup and direction of the proposed Board of the private ATC corporation.  Members of your DVPA Board agree with that assessment.
Over 117 General Aviation organizations, including AOPA and EAA, have joined together as “GA United” to oppose this legislation and support alternative, meaningful improvements to ATC funding and operations.  Details of GA United’s position are attached, and there are two great articles on this subject in the most recent Arizona Pilots Association newsletter.
Tomorrow (Thursday) is a key day in that process.  Sponsors of the legislation in the House of Representatives will determine if enough votes exist in the House to bring that legislation to the floor and pass it.  Our Arizona congressional representatives have an important voice in this situation.   After all, Arizona has a large GA community and Phoenix Deer Valley Airport is the largest, busiest GA airport in the WORLD.
It’s time for you to weigh-in TODAY (Wednesday)!  GA United has provided a toll-free number to call and leave a voice mail for your congressman, encouraging rejection of HR2997.  That number is 1-855-265-9002.  All you need is your zip code to get that message directly to your congressman.  This is particularly important if you (or any of you aviation friends) live in the districts of Representatives Paul Gosar, Andy Biggs, David Schweikert or Trent Franks.
