Scott Burgess, president of Eco-Aviation, will introduce the initiative’s mission. He notes, "The Foundation’s activities will be worldwide, especially in connecting distant eco airports together similar to 'sister cities.' We started off with a presence in Washington, DC, to further this initiative. Santa Monica as our HQ makes sense, as it is one of the leading cities promoting sustainability and anything 'eco.' The residents neighboring SMO will greatly benefit from the quietness and cleanness of aviation going green.
