GA Industry Encouraged To Register for "Day On The Hill"

ALEXANDRIA, VA -- The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) recently announced its 13th annual Day on the Hill event to be held on May 13, 2009. Each year, the association coordinates more than 200 visits for NATA member representatives to meet with their Members of Congress and staff to address a number of critical issues confronting America's aviation businesses.

"This year's Day on the Hill comes at a pivotal point in the general aviation industry's storied history with the American economy in a recession and the public's perception that the use of corporate aircraft is a luxury," says NATA President James K. Coyne. "All members of the general aviation industry are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this outstanding opportunity to meet with their Members of Congress and staff so they know directly how important this industry is to their district, state, and the American economy."
