    Washington, DC – Today, the Alliance for Aviation Across announced that 4 out of every 5 US governors, 40 in total, have signed proclamations recognizing the value of aviation – the majority of whom, 37 in total, have specifically recognized the value of general aviation to their state and the national economy. The Governors have specifically cited the jobs and economic impact of aviation, as well as how general aviation and local airports serve as a lifeline to many rural communities, supporting health care, disaster relief, law enforcement and a host of other important services and resources. Most recently, Governor Christine Gregoire of Washington and Governor Brian Sandoval of Nevada have recognized this important industry by designating June as “General Aviation Appreciation Month” and “Aviation Appreciation Month” respectively.
