California Aviation Day is an instrumental opportunity for users of the industry to inform legislators,staff, and the general public about the importance of aviation to the welfare of the state. The activities and services supported by aviation are critical to transportation, trade, commerce, emergency and medical services. Sherry Miller, President of the Association of California Airports, hopes to “increase the visibility of aviation to legislators and communities across California” to raise awareness of the impact it has to our everyday lives. Industry partnership and legislative support has led to the continued success of California Aviation Day at the Capitol
The annual economic impact of aviation in California is $154.7 billion and the State is home to 244 public-use airports with over 59,000 FAA certified pilots generating more aviation activity than any other state.
