Publication: INTERNATIONAL FALLS JOURNAL
Publication Date: 2015-08-20

In Minnesota, general aviation contributes over $5.3 billion to the state’s economy annually, according to the Alliance for Aviation Across America.

Formed in 2007, the Alliance for Aviation Across America is a non-profit, non-partisan
