AOPA unveiled its new ad campaign at a Washington, D.C., news conference on Monday, and actor Harrison Ford garnered plenty of press attention for the effort, dubbed General Aviation Serves America. "We are fortunate to have someone as well known as actor and avid pilot Harrison Ford volunteer his services to help explain all that GA is and does," CEO Craig Fuller said in a statement. In one of the ads, Ford criticizes a "misguided budget scheme that would impose crippling new fees on general aviation that could devastate small communities in every state."
