As a result of MAAC’s efforts in working with the New Jersey State Legislature, in particular Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce, the initial sponsor of the legislation, State Senate President Stephen Sweeney, and State General Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, Governor Christie signed in 2015 legislation designating May as General Aviation Appreciation Month. The legislation calls for an annual proclamation by the Governor designating May as General Aviation Appreciation Month.
MAAC is happy to report that Governor Christie has issued the first annual proclamation. Why is this important? The proclamation is a formal recognition of the importance of general aviation to New Jersey. It also serves as a rallying call for the GA industry around the state to support New Jersey’s airports. We can all show our support for GA by getting out to our local airports and getting up in the air!
