AOPA Named Top Trade Association

The Hill, a Washington, DC,-based publication, has named the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) a top lobbying trade association for the fifth year in a row.

   AOPA was the only general aviation association that made the list. According to the article, AOPA and President Mark Baker, along with other top advocates, industries, and unions, were recognized for a “demonstrated ability to wield influence and deliver results on Capitol Hill on behalf of its members seeking a voice in Washington.” AOPA’s advocacy this past year includes opposing privatizing air traffic control, making fixed-base operator pricing fairer, and working to make changes to 14 CFR Part 61.
