General Aviation Manufacturers Association President and CEO Pete Bunce issued the following statement today on the announcement that the House General Aviation Caucus has reached more than 50 percent of U.S. House of Representatives members: “Today’s announcement by U.S. Representatives Sam Graves (R-MO) and John Barrow (D-GA) that the membership of the House General Aviation Caucus has reached more than 50 percent of the members of the U.S. House of Representatives signifies a true milestone. This achievement is due to the tremendous leadership and hard work of Congressmen Graves and Barrow and their staffs, and we are grateful for their efforts. We also want to thank all of the members who have joined the House GA Caucus because they recognize general aviation’s contribution to strengthening our society and economy. We look forward to continuing to build the ranks of the Caucus and working with members on the critical issues facing general aviation. This overwhelming support is why the general aviation community has been able to makes gains in Congress on important pieces of legislation in Congress like the Small Airplane Revitalization Act.”
