General aviation supports
in economic impact per year
and 1.2 million American jobs
The sustainable aviation fuel
market size is projected to grow
$66 million in 2020
to $15.3 billion by 2030.
By 2035, the AAM market in the
United States is expected to reach
$115 billion per year and employ more than 280,000 high-paying jobs.
Over the next 20 years, the aviation
industry in North American will require
208,000 new pilots
192,000 new technicians.
General aviation and local airports support access for communities to critical services such as fire-fighting, law enforcement, emergency medical response, search and rescue, natural disaster relief, powerline maintenance, and pipeline inspection, along with many others.
Building a sustainable future
The general aviation industry, including business aviation, is making significant investments in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and technology, which will reduce its environmental impact, support economic and technological growth, and provide numerous benefits to local communities.
ADVANCED AIR MOBILITY
The next chapter in flight technology
Advanced air mobility (AAM) represents exciting new technology that has the potential to open new air transportation opportunities and move people between and within urban, suburban, and rural areas more efficiently.
TOMORROW’S AVIATION WORKFORCE
Recruiting and training tomorrow’s pilots, technicians, and cabin crew
With tens of thousands of pilots, technicians, and cabin crew reaching retirement age in the next decade, the U.S. is facing an unprecedented shortage of aviation personnel. Stakeholders within the aviation industry, and specifically general aviation, are working with local airports and aspiring pilots to pave the way for the next generation of aviators. Youth engagement and STEM education programs are more important than ever to cultivate an interest in aviation among younger people.
