Harrison Ford to Appear Before Congress


Missouri Republican Congressman Sam Graves had made the news public via Deadline that longtime amateur pilot Harrison Ford will join members of the U.S. House General Aviation Caucus on Tuesday to discuss "issues of importance to the general aviation community". Hopefully, they aren't too hard on him for crashing that plane with Anne Heche in it in that African Queen remake. Ford visited the Senate General Aviation Caucus in 2011, for more or less the same conversation on the other side of the building. "I'm pleased to welcome Harrison Ford to tomorrow's discussion, and look forward to hearing his thoughts on the timely issues of importance to America's pilots," Graves, a co-chair of the caucus, said. "The biggest challenge for general aviation is getting our message to all 435 lawmakers, and events like this provide a megaphone to promote general aviation while also helping expand the caucus' membership."
