Urgent Help Needed

Hello, DVPA Members,

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 is continuing. This is known as House Bill HR2997.  It is clear 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.

There are now over 150 General Aviation organizations, including AOPA,   EAA, and DVPA, 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 Arizona Pilots Association newsletter.

It is likely that HR2997 will come up for a vote in the next two weeks.  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 VERY important that you call or email your congressman again to oppose HR2997, NOW, even if you have done so previously.  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.
