Subject: Aviation Day in Pennsylvania Co-sponsorship memo
In the near future, I will be introducing a resolution making August 19th “Aviation Day” in Pennsylvania.

Aviation in Pennsylvania has dated back over 100 years and currently ranks 11th in the country in the number of public-use aviation facilities with 128 airports, heliports and seaplane bases, providing an annual economic impact of $23.6 billion to the state of Pennsylvania. The aviation industry in Pennsylvania also supports more than 300,000 jobs making it one of the largest employment sectors in the state.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared the first National Aviation Day 1939, which celebrates the history and development of aviation. This national event provides an annual opportunity to pay tribute to the pioneering individuals who have contributed so much to this industry. It is my hope that this resolution will allow all of us in Pennsylvania the same opportunity.
Please join me in sponsoring this legislation.
