Wednesday Is Aviation Appreciation Day In Tennessee

Governor Phil Bredesen To Make the Announcement At The State Capitol

Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen (pictured) will appear with his state's aerospace experts and members of the General Aviation community from around the country Wednesday to highlight a statewide proclamation in support of the aviation industry. The event takes place as part of a nationwide effort to demonstrate the economic impact the general aviation industry has on state and local economies.
 
The "General Aviation Appreciation Month" Proclamation Announcement will include TN Governor Phil Bredesen, Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner Gerald Nicely, Tennessee Aeronautics Commissioners Chairman Ron Cooper, Fred Culbreath, Fred Dettwiller, Belinda Anderson, Larry Mullins, Aeronautics Director Bob Woods, AOPA representative Bob Minter, AAAA's Matthew Hager, and Dick Doubrava on behalf of the National Business Aviation Association. It's scheduled for 0930 on the steps of the State Capitol in Nashville.
 

 

According to statistics from the Alliance for Aviation Across America (AAAA), Tennessee relies a great deal on general aviation (GA).  From an economic perspective, GA alone contributes $2.57 billion to the state's economy, or $431 per capita, annually. Tennessee has 82 commercial and general aviation airports, 11,829 pilots and 6,512 general aviation aircraft. The state is also home to 46 flight companies, 56 repair stations and four flights schools, maintaining a good percentage of the 51,800 aviation-related jobs in the state.
