Virginia General Assembly

Aviation & Aerospace Caucus

The VGAAC is focused on legislation that supports the aviation and aerospace industries in Virginia. The caucus promotes workforce and other initiatives to ensure the Commonwealth remains business-friendly to the aviation and aerospace sectors.


The VGAAC serves as a more formalized opportunity for the members of the House and Senate to learn about aviation and aerospace and explore opportunities for growth.

All members of the legislator are technically members of the caucus.

Unfortunately not all members can attend every meeting held by the caucus.

To date caucus participants include:

Del. Bonita Anthony
