  • The Alliance for Aviation Across America has commended Lewisburg Mayor John Manchester for proclaiming October “General Aviation Appreciation Month.” In West Virginia, general aviation contributes $616 million to the state’s economy annually.

    “Mayor Manchester’s proclamation helps highlight the economic benefits and valuable service that general aviation provides to Lewisburg and the state of West Virgina,” said Selena Shilad, executive director of the Alliance for Aviation Across America. “We sincerely thank the mayor and the city of Lewisburg for recognizing this vital industry.”

    Formed in 2007, the Alliance for Aviation Across America is a non-profit, non-partisan coalition of more than 6,300 individuals representing businesses, agricultural groups, FBO’s, small airports, elected officials, charitable organizations, and leading business and aviation groups that support the interest of the general aviation community across various public policy issues.
