On May 19, 2015, the Aviation industry came together to protect Veterans and collectively oppose H.R. 476. Helicopter Association International (HAI), the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), the National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO), the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), and the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) sent a powerful message to Congressional leadership opposing H.R. 476 and calling for its removal.
Industry leadership has called the proposed legislation a “..disservice to our nation’s Veterans….discriminating against veterans seeking a flight-training degree from public institutions of higher learning”.
Request that Congress STOP H.R. 476.
