Rep. Foxx Visits with N.C. Repair Stations

On March 29, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), a senior member of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, participated in an ARSA-organized event at Piedmont Propulsion Systems in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

In addition to executives from Piedmont Propulsion Systems’ and its parent company First Aviation Services, Inc., HAECO Americas’ leadership team participated, including ARSA Board Member David Latimer, the company’s vice president of regulatory compliance. North State Aviation was also represented at the meeting.

In conjunction with Rep. Foxx’s visit, ARSA PAC presented a contribution to support her reelection campaign.  Rep. Foxx has demonstrated leadership on issues important to the aviation maintenance industry, including addressing the skilled technical workforce shortage, one of ARSA’s top priorities.

“Rep. Foxx is a champion for issues important to ARSA and its membership”, said First Aviation Services’ Senior Vice President and ARSA Government Affairs Chairman Josh Krotec.  “It’s important that the industry support our allies on Capitol Hill to ensure they have the campaign resources to win reelection and return to Washington.”

ARSA’s legislative team frequently emphasizes inviting lawmakers and candidates to visit repair stations around the country.  “I can’t stress enough the importance of hosting elected officials at your facility,” Latimer said.  “The best way to educate is to show policymakers what the industry does and how we contribute every day to economic growth and job creation while ensuring aviation safety.”
