The Alliance for Aviation Across America recently launched a wide-scale economic impact survey to outline the benefit of general aviation on businesses, local economies and communities around the nation.
This project is an ongoing, collaborative effort using the latest information available. As such, if you have any questions or have any new data that you would like to incorporate, we would love to hear from you – please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This survey has been co-sponsored by the following Alliance members: League of Rural Voters, Air Care Alliance, National Agricultural Aviation Association, Small Business Entrepeneurship Council, and National Association of State Aviation Officials.
Across the United States, general aviation is a vital resource for our nation’s farms and agricultural producers. Agricultural aviation operations ensure that our nation’s farmers continue to supply our communities with food and resources such as cotton, timber, bio-fuel ingredients, and farmers rely upon aerial application operations to survey and monitor crops, seed rice and wheat, feed fish, defoliate cotton prior to harvest, and fight forest and grassland fires. In addition, agricultural aviation allows for the application of herbicides, insecticides and fertilizer for fruit, vegetables and grain crops.

General aviation plays a vital role in supporting law enforcement and medical service operations throughout the United States.
General aviation aircraft allow law enforcement officers the ability to extend their field of vision, assist those on the ground with alerts to dangers that may otherwise go unseen, conduct traffic enforcement, DUI monitoring, and, and help with search and rescue.
By far the most important attribute of these aircraft for law enforcement is their coverage range. Aircraft can cover large distances quickly in comparison to traditional law enforcement ground units, and help with security and fire fighting missions.
