Senator Inhofe to Retire in 2023

Stalwart Defender of Pilot Rights, Booster of Retirement Age, and Friend to GA Announces a Leave from Office

NBAA president Ed Bolen thanked Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe for his faithful support of the general aviation industry following his office's announcement that he will retire in January of next year. 

The Senator has long been a friend of the industry, having a hand in many of the rights and advancements seen in aerospace legislation going back decades. His work was vital to direct the General Aviation Revitalization Act, which was passed during his time in the House of Representatives. He also advanced the medical certification process for recreational pilots, which later made its way into the 2016 FAA Reauthorization bill, as well as the ability to appeal emergency revocations of certificates to the NTSB. Professional pilots especially owe the Senator their thanks, as he was the one who introduced legislation that brought the commercial pilot retirement age to 65, from 60 - granting a few more years when pilot earnings are at their peak. 

“As the longest serving federal elected official in Oklahoma history, the lasting impact of Sen. Inhofe’s accomplished political career – especially for the betterment of the nation’s aviation infrastructure – is testament to his dedication to public service and commitment to principles that will continue to shape this country for years to come. The general aviation community is proud to call Sen. Inhofe not just a friend, but a champion,” said Bolen in closing. "Through his efforts, and the incredible work of his dedicated staff, he leaves a legacy that places general aviation on a flight path for a successful future.”
