    The council adopted a proclamation declaring February 2018 as General Aviation Appreciation Month, initiated by Alliance for Aviation Across America, a non-profit coalition of over 6,300 individuals, business and agriculture groups, FBO’s, small airports helping to raise awareness about the general value of small airports particularly in rural areas. Their goal is to help educate communities across the country about the benefits of general aviation.  The proclamation states that Colorado has 61 public use airports and 68 fixed-base operators serving 17,583 pilots in the state and contributing over $2.4 billion to the state’s economy.
