The Alliance for Aviation Across America has commended North Platte Mayor Dwight Livingston for proclaiming May as General Aviation Appreciation Month.
In Nebraska, general aviation has an economic output of $1.2 billion annually.
“Mayor Livingston’s proclamation helps highlight the economic benefits and valuable service that general aviation provides to North Platte and the state of Nebraska,” said Selena Shilad, executive director of the Alliance for Aviation Across America. “We sincerely thank the mayor and the city of North Platte for recognizing this vital industry.”
Formed in 2007, the Alliance for Aviation Across America is a nonprofit, nonpartisan coalition of more than 6,300 individuals representing businesses, agricultural groups, FBOs, small airports, elected officials, charitable organizations, and leading business and aviation groups that support the interest of the general aviation community across various public policy issues.
North Platte is one of 81 public-use airports in Nebraska.
