NATA Sends Off Senator Inhofe

Consistent Friend of the Industry Thanked As He Heads Towards Retirement

Another industry body has seen off the outgoing Senator James Inhofe, thanking him for his continual service to the aviation industry throughout his career. 

Timothy Obitts, president of the National Air Transportation Association, is grateful for the work done by the Inhofe office, who completed a number of important projects and changes that have affected nearly everyone in the system. After almost 30 years of service in the U.S. Congress, he announced that he will retire, ending his term prematurely in January 2023. Obitts described Senator Inhofe as an "avid aviator", saying he "has been a stalwart champion for general aviation in the U.S. Congress since he won his seat in 1986, first in the House of Representatives and for the past 28 years in Senate."

“On behalf of aviation businesses, NATA thanks Senator Jim Inhofe for his extensive service and honors his legacy as one of our industry’s greatest proponents," Obitts continued. The NATA president shined a light on the rural, more down-to-earth general aviation focus that the Senator  had, himself often seen at the help of his well-loved Piper.  "Senator Inhofe’s skill as a legislator and his keen understanding of the value that aviation provides to rural America helped shape, maintain, and safeguard the vibrant general aviation landscape that we enjoy across the nation today. The Senator and his staff worked hand-in-hand with aviation stakeholders, addressing our industry’s needs—from infrastructure to workforce—every step of the way. As we wish the Senator all the best in his much-deserved retirement, we recognize his departure will leave a tremendous void in our nation’s capital," said Obitts in closing.
