​​Virginia Aviation Conferences & Events

Aviation Day at the General Assembly
February 7, 2019

Patrick Henry Building - West Reading Room

​900 East Main Street

Richmond, Virginia 23219

This is one of the most important events sponsored by the VAOC. Aviation Day is your chance to influence the issues that affect the Commonwealth's airports. Registration is open to all VAOC members, airport managers, airport staff, airport authority or commission members, and sponsor representatives. 

How It Works 
The VAOC will schedule appointments with House and Senate representatives who have airports in their District. The morning of February 7, 2019, we will gather at the Patrick Henry Building to review talking points, strategies, and break into teams. Experienced VAOC members will be paired with newer members to visit legislators. 

Teams will be provided with an appointment list, biographies of legislators, talking points, an overview of bills and/or issues of interest, and the VAOC Year in Review highlighting the health of the aviation system in the Commonwealth.
