FARGO, ND – Today Alliance for Aviation Across America (AAAA) Board Member Henry Ogrodzinski attended the Upper Midwest Aviation Symposium in Fargo where Lt. Governor Jack Dalrymple signed a statewide proclamation declaring this week, “North Dakota Aviation Week”. Mr. Ogrodzinski applauded the Lt. Governor’s support for aviation:
“The Alliance for Aviation Across America applauds Lt. Governor Dalrymple’s proclamation recognizing the importance of aviation to the state of North Dakota,” said Henry Ogrodzinski. “With general aviation alone contributing approximately $248.28 million and around 2,598 jobs, the industry is absolutely vital to the state’s overall economy. We are also very proud of the state’s top-notch flight school at the University of North Dakota, continually providing the rest of the country with the next generation of highly trained pilots. We would like to thank Governor Hoeven and Lt. Governor Dalrymple for their recognition of this vital resource to small towns and rural communities across North Dakota and beyond.”
