California Aviation Awareness Day

The first annual California Aviation Awareness Day event to be held on April 24, 2013, between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm on the north steps of the State Capitol in Sacramento.  The purpose of the event is to inform the public and legislators about the importance of aviation to California.  Many of our members have been helping get us organized as this was not initially a planned event for ACA.  But, it made sense that ACA take the lead and we will have more information at the September conference on planning for the event in 2014.

The event provides information about California’s aviation industry and the multitude of activities and businesses that it supports. Displays will include a mobile command unit, light fixed wing aircraft, aircraft simulator, table top displays with information about the numerous private and public sector aviation contributors, along with engines and other aircraft items from the California Aerospace Museum.

California Aviation Day is the combined effort of numerous aviation industry groups from across California.  ACA was determined to be the best organization to head up the effort.  Our sponsors include the California Aviation Council, California Pilots Association, National Business Aviation Association, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, Reach Air Medical and the Air Med Care Network, Southern California Aviation Association, Northern California Business Aviation Association, Truckee Tahoe Airport District, Paramount Citrus Aviation, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Tartaglia Engineering, Aeroplex & Aerolease Group,  C & S Companies, Mead & Hunt, and Association of California Airports.
