General Aviation Factoids 2019

The 2018 GAMA Annual Report carried many interesting facts.  Here are four that I’d like to share with you about General Aviation:

General Aviation

  • Flies to more than 5,000 U.S. public airports, but the scheduled airline carriers serve less than 400 of these locations.
  • Flies about 25 million flight hours, of which two-thirds are for business purposes in the United States.
  • Is the primary training ground for commercial airline pilots.
  • Supports $219 billion in total economic output and 1.1 million jobs in the United States.

General Aviation is defined as all aviation other than military and scheduled commercial airlines.
