NATA APPLAUDS SELECTION OF REP. LOBIONDO AS CHAIRMAN OF AVIATION SUBCOMMITTEE

Alexandria, VA, January 16, 2013 – The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) applauds the selection of Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ) to serve as the new Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure's Aviation Subcommittee for the 113th Congress.

"Chairman LoBiondo understands the vital role of general aviation to the Nation's economy," stated NATA President and CEO Thomas L. Hendricks. "Congressman LoBiondo is a capable and knowledgeable leader whose bipartisan work reflects the best interests of the general aviation community."

The FAA William J. Hughes Technical Center, one of the Nation's premier aviation research, development, test and evaluation facilities, is located in LoBiondo's district. This clearly provides a very insightful perspective into key developments that are driving the transformation of our national airspace system.

"NATA is confident that Representative LoBiondo's distinguished service in Congress as well as his background as a successful small businessman will be valuable assets in addressing the interests of the general aviation business community," added Hendricks.

NATA members include fixed base operators, air charter operators, flight training providers, and maintenance and repair facilities, which provide thousands of jobs across the country and contribute $150 billion annually to the Nation's economy.
