"The only very important people in here today is you!" rallied Pete Bunce, president of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), before some 2,000 aviation workers on March 21 in Wichita, Kan. The multitudes of workers erupted in cheers at his words. "This rally is about you. It's about these tremendous machines that you build for the world." The event, sponsored by GAMA, Cessna, Learjet and Hawker Beechcraft, was meant to showcase the general aviation capital of the world for Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.
