General Aviation Appreciation Month

Aviation enthusiasts have reason to celebrate June in Washington state as Gov. Jay Inslee has declared it “General Aviation Appreciation Month.” General aviation – from recreational to business to emergency medical flights – is a vital part of the state’s transportation system and economy.

Washington is home to 135 public-use airports, more than 19,000 pilots and more than 6,660 general aviation aircraft. The state’s aviation system supports 248,500 jobs, $15.3 billion in wages and $50.9 billion in economic activity.

“We’re pleased for the support that Gov. Inslee is providing through this proclamation and recognition of the value that general aviation brings to the state,” said Tristan Atkins, aviation director for the Washington State Department of Transportation. “We encourage people to celebrate this month by visiting some of our state’s beautiful and diverse airports.”

The governor’s proclamation was informed by the 2012 Washington Aviation Economic Impact study, completed by the Washington State Department of Transportation Aviation Division. The proclamation highlights how general aviation, aerospace, aircraft manufacturing and other aviation activities contribute to Washington’s economic health and vitality.
