From the President
North Carolina has been a leader in the history of aviation in the US and that leadership continues today. Together, with the changing aviation industry we can work to keep North Carolina a leader in aviation. 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. Tell your story and the needs of aviation in North Carolina. 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.
