“AOPA applauds Senator Inhofe for introducing the Pilot’s Bill of Rights legislation giving the aviation community much greater certainty about the process of enforcing the regulations by which we fly. We look forward to working with Senator Inhofe and others in the Congress who have already stepped forward with their support,” said AOPA President Craig Fuller.
Inhofe, who has addressed audiences at the annual Oshkosh event on legislative issues of importance to GA every year for 31 years, urged AOPA members in his written announcement of the bill to contact their members of Congress to rally support for the legislation.
“Sen. Inhofe's proposed Pilot's Bill of Rights addresses a wide range of issues that affect thousands of pilots, many of whom seek assistance with these matters through the AOPA Legal Services Plan,” Fuller said. “We at AOPA are pleased to see that this measure has received broad support from so many U.S. senators because it will help provide a degree of certainty, enabling pilots who follow the complex regulations governing aviation to fly with confidence.”
