December is General Aviation Appreciation Month!

General aviation (GA) is defined as all civilian flying except scheduled passenger service and military. It is wide and varying: from introducing elementary kids to airplanes, conducting surveys, moving cargo, and more -- GA does a lot!  General aviation helps with simple needs as well as more complex issues.  Need to take a quick trip for the day to family or an important meeting to close a deal? GA can get you there.  Does a natural disaster require emergency evacuations or supplies?  GA can get you there.  Need agriculture management or airborne law enforcement to track speed or track criminals on the run? GA can get that done!

In an effort to remind cities, counties, legislators, and State administration of these important services, the Ohio Aviation Association works with our members and officials to seek the passage of resolutions to be read in public and get them on “the books” to show support and recognition for all it brings to the State and its communities. Below is Ashtabula County Airport Authority President, Dwight Bowden (center) and Vice President George Toth (to the right of Dwight) accepting the resolution passed by the Ashtabula County Commissioners!
