Podcast: Forming a State General Aviation Caucus

March 8, 2021

Business aviation was a driving force behind the creation of a new Colorado general aviation caucus dedicated to educating state lawmakers about the industry’s importance across the Centennial State. “It’s absolutely critical for the business aviation groups to be at the caucuses and be involved with them,” said Kelly Sloan, legislative affairs specialist for the Colorado Aviation Business Association. “If we’re not engaged, things are going to happen to our industry that we’re not going to know about until [it’s] too late.”

In today’s episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Alan Burnett, founding partner at CenterPoint Aviation Law PLLC and member of the Pacific Northwest Business Aviation Association and the NBAA Tax Committee
  • Kristi Ivey, CAM, NBAA northern mountain regional representative
  • Kelly Sloan, legislative affairs specialist for the Colorado Aviation Business Association
