Congressman Cárdenas on Van Nuys Airport's 90th Anniversary
Congratulations to Van Nuys Airport (VNY) as they celebrate 90 Years of Flight. Van Nuys Airport is the largest economic engine in the San Fernando Valley. It’s also a cornerstone of the community — VNY served as a staging area for firefighters during one of the deadliest wildfire seasons in the history of this country, and pilots and firefighters based there worked long hours keeping Californians safe. A world leader in environmental responsibility as well as community safety, Van Nuys Airport is one of only five general aviation airports anywhere to gain a Carbon Emissions Reduction Accreditation. I would like to commend the owners, operators, tenants, airport staff, and every person in the San Fernando Valley community that has helped make the Van Nuys Airport a global leader in service, safety and responsibility.
