Legislative Affairs

From the President

Greetings NCAA Members:

North Carolina has an important place in the history of aviation that is enjoyed still today! Funding the many projects of our North Carolina airports remains a critical priority for the continued growth and success of the airports system that we are so proud of and that contributes so much to our state and local economies! Our ongoing efforts to insure success can only be accomplished through the relationships we have enjoyed with our General Assembly.

That our state airports system may prosper, I encourage you to continue to forge these relationships with your Representatives and seek the much needed assistance to meet the challenge of funding allocation. The time you spend with your Representatives will absolutely be an invaluable investment in the future of North Carolina airports.

As your NCAA President this year, I look forward to working with all of you. If I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Gary Broughton
NCAA President

NCAA Legislative Agenda

The NCAA maintains a legislative affairs initiative in order to support policies that positively impact aviation in North Carolina and the US. The NCAA emphasizes the following policy priorities:

  • reducing burdensome regulations that do not enhance safety, efficiency and financial stability;
  • preserving secure access to airports and airspace, and;
  • communicate the economic contribution of aviation in NC to local, state and national lawmakers.
