In response to recent contact from Recreational Aviation Foundation President John McKenna acknowledging November as Aviation Month, the Governor of Montana issued an official Letter of Recognition of Montana’s aviation industry and its contribution to the state.
The letter states, “Montana’s airports provide mobility for business, recreational, and family travelers and provide facilities for vital services such as commercial freight handling, flight training, agricultural spraying fire protection and military activity . . . Our aviation assets are essential for public safety and emergency preparedness efforts.”
The letter concludes, “I congratulate Montana’s pilots, aircraft maintenance professionals, airport managers and personnel, safety and security specialists and aviation and aerospace businesses for your record of success. Please join me in thanking these fine folks for their commitment and dedication”
The Recreational Aviation Foundation is a national non-profit organization based in Bozeman with supporters in 49 states. Its mission is “Keeping the legacy of recreational aviation strong by preserving, maintaining and creating public use recreational and backcountry airstrips nationwide.”
