About this collection

Aviation is an important part of North Carolina's history. From being "First in Flight" in 1903 to Charlotte-Douglas Airport being an American Airline hub, aviation brings jobs, commerce and tourists to our state and has a great impact on its economy. In 2000, Helms fought hard to get more INS agents at the Charlotte-Douglas Airport to help with the rapid growth of international flights  and was outspoken and critical of any legislation that he thought would hurt the industry. Senator Helms understood how important the aviation business was to the people of his home state and tried to help whenever possible.
