Washington, DC – The Alliance for Aviation Across America today thanked Governor Matthew Bevin for declaring July 2016 “General Aviation Month.” In Kentucky, general aviation contributes over $1.6 billion to the state’s total economy.

We thank Governor Bevin for the proclamation and for recognizing general aviation’s important role in the Commonwealth.”
According to the proclamation:
“A great many businesses and communities in Kentucky depend upon general aviation aircraft and small aircraft of all types for mobility, access to medical treatment, economic opportunity, disaster relief and a wide range of critical resources.”
