Sarcs comment: Trolling back through the history of our truly only GA reps involvement in past parliamentary inquiries, there was one submission of note back in 1999-2000 that the association should seriously consider re-badging/updating (name changes etc) and forward as their submission for the TASRR:House Committee sub 145 Hmm...on second thoughts perhaps not!
Folks,
In those days, AOPA was a very different and much larger organization, with a very different approach to the present and much smaller AOPA. As somebody basks on one post, can and organisation that takes money from CASA be independent -- or more importantly: "Bite the hand that feeds it".

Of course not!!!

In comparison, in the 90s and early 2000s, a prime AOPA policy was "Pay your own way, have your own say", and, actually, quite a lot was achieved, including forcing Parts 21 to 35 into law.

Tootle pip!!
