Aero-News Quote of the Day
"We are quite pleased to see this provision included
within the bill... The banner towing community has unfairly singled
out since the September 2001 terrorist attacks. Incredibly, they
have been prevented from operating, seemingly for commercial
reasons. The Subcommittee's action corrects this injustice
and all aviation businesses should be gratified with this step
toward restoring their ability to make a living."
