    Washington, DC – The Alliance for Aviation Across America today applauded the Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine, for signing a proclamation designating the month of December as “General Aviation Appreciation Month.” According to the 2014 Ohio Airports Economic Impact Study, general aviation airports annually contribute more than $1.8 billion to the state’s economy.

    “In Ohio, general aviation and our network of airports support the livelihood of businesses, towns, cities, and farms across the state and country,” said Selena Shilad, executive director of the Alliance for Aviation Across America. “We thank Governor DeWine for his leadership in recognizing the importance of general aviation and look forward to working with him and other leaders to support these aircraft and our network of airports.”

    Formed in 2007, the Alliance for Aviation Across America is a non-profit, non-partisan coalition of over 7,000 individuals representing businesses, agricultural groups, FBO’s, small airports, elected officials, charitable organizations, and leading business and aviation groups that support the interests of the general aviation community across various public policy issues.
