Our Impact… The SCAA South Carolina Aviation Association and its members are considered significant resources on aviation related subjects to our state legislators, our congressmen and our professional colleagues. The Association’s advocacy has produced positive and tangible results. For example, in 2006 with support of the association, legislation was approved to allow counties to lower property tax from 10.5 percent to as little as four percent. Many counties, including Rock Hill Airport saw an increase in business and profits due to the passage of this legislation.
The Association played a role in the SCAA South Carolina Aviation Association 1recreation of the SC Aeronautics Commission. These efforts stopped the massive erosion of the state’s aviation assets and serves to protect the Division of Aeronautics. Currently, the Association is partnering with the SC Aeronautics Commission to promote an update of Title 55, which provides the aviation laws in the state. What’s in it for you… As a member of the association, you are a part of the only legislatively active aviation group in the state.
Regulations and laws govern you and your/our industry just as much if not more than most . . . that’s why it is so critical to stay informed as well as be a part of the group of professionals who work to influence our governance. You will become a part of an information chain that includes industry updates directly from the State Director, invitations to important events, programs and exchanges with other aviation professionals inside our side.
