Welcome to the July Issue of The BAC Bulletin & DA News!
With the summer flying season in full swing, safety should be everyone’s priority. In this issue, we share a letter on safety from FAA Administrator Michael Huerta to all general aviation pilots.
And good news for aircraft management companies: the IRS recently announced it will suspend potential federal Excise tax assessments until clear guidance is developed.
Reminder: Danbury Aviation’s Customer Appreciation Party — July 3 from 6pm-10:30pm!
DA/BAC customers are invited to enjoy BBQ, refreshments, and a front-row fireworks experience! Tommy Tunes will be our guest DJ playing all of your favorite songs before and after the fireworks.
We strongly encourage you to spend the final hour with us at the hangar enjoying coffee, desserts, and dancing while the traffic dissipates.
