Aviation Loses A Friend and Colleague

Alexandria, VA, January 24, 2014 – The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) released this statement in tribute to Henry M. Ogrodzinski, President and CEO of the National Association of State Aviation Officials.

“It is with a heavy heart that NATA and the aviation community bids farewell to Henry Ogrodzinski. He was not only a strong advocate for our industry, but also a friend to countless members of the entire aviation community. Henry will be remembered for his unwavering dedication, his strength, his incredible talent, but most of all for the personal touch he brought to everything he did. He has left an indelible mark on the industry as a mentor and leader. We extend our sympathy to his family, colleagues and friends,” said NATA President and CEO Thomas L. Hendricks.
