October 22, 2020 (Fargo, ND) Fargo’s aviation community leaders gathered together at the Fargo Air Museum on October 19, 2020, to discuss the National Air Transportation Association’s (NATA) General Aviation Advancing America initiative.
The gathering was crafted as an interactive forum for leaders to educate their communities on the importance of aviation businesses and the essential services they deliver. Vital topics, such as the value of general aviation in serving communities across the country, how general aviation stakeholders facilitate the success of the community, and how rural airports serve as a runway for economic development, job recovery, and emergency response were discussed among the group.
The event also highlighted the critical role of the airport and its tenant business’ in assisting throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, during recovery, and beyond.
“Aviation plays a crucial role in our economy, both by providing safe transportation of essential people and goods, but also in providing hundreds of jobs locally,” says Jim Sweeney, Fargo Jet Center President. “We applaud NATA for their efforts in highlighting the value of aviation and appreciate they chose to represent Fargo, ND as one of their city stops,” adds Sweeney.
NATA will continue to promote its initiative in cities throughout North Dakota and across the United States.
