Aero-TV thought it was important for ANN viewers to see and hear some of the poignant remarks that were part of a number of intriguing discussions at the most recent AOPA Expo. When the Friday morning General Session at AOPA Expo 2007 kicked off, it quickly focused on the need to protect general aviation airports around the nation. AOPA president Phil Boyer started the session with examples of how GA has suffered from airport closures, along with success stories about several airports that have been saved were presented. Boyer recognized the significance of the Airport Support Network. The ASN is celebrating 10 years of promoting, protecting and defending airports throughout the nation.
