NBAA, others oppose legislation that would hobble NYC’s helicopter industry

NBAA has joined with five general aviation associations in opposition to two New York City bills that would severely restrict helicopter operations in the city.

Following a hearing before the City Council Committee on Economic Development, the general aviation advocacy groups sent a letter setting out their opposition to the two bills, while also expressing support for a third proposal that would promote the use of electric rotorcraft by New York City government officials.
