Last month, on the 116th anniversary of the Wright Brothers' first successful powered flight, the Greg Gebhardt for Lt. Governor Campaign announced their plans
to fly across North Carolina in a small aircraft, as the "First in Flight" Lt. Governor Candidate.
Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of a fellow combat Veteran, Jason Davis, and his wife Rebecca, in the coming weeks Greg Gebhardt will be taking to the skies, utilizing the North Carolina Public Airport System to visit 18 counties in 4 days
On the plans, Greg Gebhardt offered the following:
"Our campaign has always been about reaching as many hardworking North Carolinians as possible, in their communities. We are very blessed to have the opportunity of honoring our state's rich history of aviation by taking to the skies, traveling the state to meet voters and share our message of freedom, opportunity, and the American Dream. We look forward to visiting with more North Carolinians from across the state and proving to them that we are the only Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor with a clear Vision for Victory in 2020: Veterans, Vocational Trades, and Voter ID."
Over the course of 4 days, Team Greg will be visiting the following 18 counties:
Alamance County, Brunswick County, Buncombe County, Cabarrus County, Catawba County, Craven County, Cumberland County, Davie County, Gaston County, Guilford County, Johnston County, Iredell County, Moore County, New Hanover County, Randolph County, Union County, Wayne County, and Wilkes County.
On the economic importance of North Carolina's robust public airport system, N.C. Department of Transportation Division of Aviation Director Bobby Walston said:
"Our network of 72 publicly owned airports, and the aviation and aerospace assets that rely on them, help move our economy forward by creating jobs, supporting business growth and connecting people and companies to markets around the globe."
According to the Division of Aviation
, North Carolina's public airports annually contribute $52 billion to the state's economy, supporting 307,000 jobs that generate $12.6 billion in personal income and $2.2 billion in state and local tax revenues.
