Aviation Community Meets With Minnesota’s Elected Officials

ST. PAUL, MINN. – The Minnesota aviation community hosted its second annual “Aviation Day At The Capitol” event, January 30, 2013 at the State Capitol in St. Paul. Pilots, airport managers, fixed base operators, airport commissioners, mayors, city council members, business aircraft owners and operators, corporate flight departments, aircraft technicians, consultants, and  aviation support service professionals met with their state senators and representatives to tell them how important aviation and their local airports are to them and to their local communities.

The event kicked off with a welcome breakfast at 9:00 a.m. where each participant received a packet of materials containing handouts they could give to legislators, along with suggested talking points. Hosting “Minnesota Aviation Day At The Capital” was the Minnesota Aviation Trades Association (MATA), Minnesota Business Aviation Association (MBAA), and Minnesota Council Of Airports (MCOA).
