About the Alliance
Formed in 2007, the Alliance for Aviation Across America is a non-profit, non-partisan coalition of over 6,300 individuals, businesses, agricultural groups, FBO’s, small airports, elected officials, charitable organizations, and leading business and aviation groups that are helping to raise awareness about the value of general aviation and local airports, particularly for rural communities. For these communities, general aviation and local airports support business activity, medical care, disaster relief, firefighting, agriculture, law enforcement, and a host of important resources and services.

This wide-scale economic impact survey was co-sponsored by Alliance members League of Rural Voters, Air Care Alliance, National Agricultural Aviation Association, Small Business Entrepreneur Council, and the National Association of State Aviation Officials.
