The Alliance for Aviation Across America today commended Mayor Stephen L. Santellana of Wichita Falls for proclaiming November “General Aviation Appreciation Month.”
In Texas, general aviation airports support an annual economic output of over $14.4 billion.
“Mayor Santellana’s proclamation helps highlight the economic benefits and valuable service that general aviation provides to the City of Wichita Falls and the State of Texas,” said Selena Shilad, Executive Director of the Alliance for Aviation Across America. “We sincerely thank the Mayor and the City of Wichita Falls for recognizing this vital industry.”
Formed in 2007, the Alliance for Aviation Across America is a non-profit, non-partisan coalition of more than 6,300 individuals representing businesses, agricultural groups, FBO’s, 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.
