General Aviation Serves America

We must remember that the DC-3 and all its variants are a part of General Aviation.

General aviation is facing the greatest challenges of its 100-year history.

  • A budget proposal for costly new user fees
  • Efforts to dramatically increase taxes
  • Onerous security regulations
  • Urban pressures on small airports
  • Negative image of private aircraft as “toy for the rich”

These challenges could financially cripple pilots, threaten more than 1 million jobs, shut down airports, and economically isolate thousands of communities across the United States.

Join this epic battle to protect who we are, what we do, and what we love! We are friends, family members, and neighbors who serve America from the air every day!
