Colorado General Aviation Alliance
... the voice of general aviation in Colorado
YOUR ALLIANCE IN ACTION:
CGAA has been supporting the legislative effort initiated by our member organizations Colorado Agricultural Aviation Association (CAAA) and the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). In December 2013, HB14-1216 was drafted and introduced by State Representative Jerry Sonnenberg (R - District 65). Sam Rogge, President of the CAAA, testified before the House Transportation Committee, and several CGAA board members were present in support at the hearing.
We are also developing a CALENDAR TOOL on this website for posting of events by member organizations. This feature will be demonstrated at the Meet & Greet on Saturday March 22 (See details here).
