Florida Governor Rick Scott has declared April “Aviation Appreciation Month.” In Florida, general aviation supports 54,000 jobs and $6 billion in annual economic activity.
“We thank Governor Scott for his recognition of the importance of the general aviation industry,” said Selena Shilad, Executive Director of the Alliance for Aviation Across America. “General aviation plays a central role in Florida’s economy and in supporting jobs and area companies.”
“General aviation and local airports enable communities in Florida to connect with far-off markets and crucial services,” stated Mark Baker, President and CEO of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). “We applaud Governor Scott’s recognition of the significance of this industry and the benefits that it provides to the citizens of Florida and around the country.”
