CALIFORNIA AIRPORT MANAGERS AND AIRPORT USERS JOIN FORCES

In an aviation historical first, California’s airport managers and airport users have joined forces to preserve and promote California’s 250 public airports. The airport managers, represented by the Association of California Airports, and the airport users represented by the California Pilots Association, have formed a joint political action committee. It is registered with the California Secretary of State as the California Airport and Pilot Political Action Committee. The main mission is to pursue legislation beneficial to airports, and to help elect candidates for local or state offices that support airport preservation. The PAC is self-governed by a panel of six trustees, three selected by the Association of California Airports and three selected by the California Pilots Association. Initial trustees selected by ACA are Mark Bautista, Mary Hansen and John Swizer. Those selected by CPA are Patricia Forbes, Doug Rice and Carol Ford. All serve as volunteers. Funding is through voluntary donations.
