Welcome to the April Issue of The BAC Bulletin & DA News!
In this issue, we remind you of the fight to stop the Connecticut property tax increases proposed by Gov. Malloy, and encourage you to get involved with a list of things you can do. Now that Spring is finally here, we're looking forward to another wonderful year of Fly-in’s and social activities. In addition to what’s coming up at BAC, we provide you with information on how to find social activities through online pilot groups. We hope to see you at our first event of the year when we host the FAA’s Seminar, "Keeping Your Aircraft in Shape!" on Tuesday, April 26 and save the date for our Spring Fling on Saturday, May 14th.

Our Community Is At Risk: Time To Speak Up!
As we reported last month, Governor Dannel Malloy is proposing a property tax that could drastically impact the landscape of aviation in the state of Connecticut. Malloy’s Bill HB6387proposes that all aircraft based in Connecticut be taxed at 20 mils of its valuation, regardless of where in the state the aircraft is based.

Get Social with Online Pilot Groups
The private aircraft community is a vibrant social one—get us together and we’ll talk about everything aircraft and our adventures for hours. The Internet and social media websites such as Facebook and dozens of online forums are a great way to find pilot groups—online and offline aviation clubs. Just Google "aircraft pilot group" and your interests and location, and you’re sure to find one in your area. And with warm weather on the way, now is a great time to get involved in fly-ins and other social activities pilots and their families can share.
BAC also has numerous events throughout the warmer months. See below for our first event this year.
