Plattsburgh, New York – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today joined BETA Technologies for a tour of their facility at their flight test facility in Plattsburgh.

“It was great to join BETA technologies today at their flight test facility in Plattsburgh,” Stefanik said. “I am proud to bring the concerns of this local business to the highest levels and to have worked to include a provision in this year’s national defense bill to support their critical work in our district and strengthen our U.S. military.”

Stefanik secured a provision in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 that requires a briefing on the Army’s plans for incorporating electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOLs) aircraft into the air fleet.
