The FAA’s annual General Aviation (GA) and Part 135 Activity Survey, which will collect data on GA operations in 2016, is underway. NBAA is encouraging members that have been invited to participate in the confidential poll to do so in order to provide the agency with a clear picture of business aviation activity.
The FAA’s annual GA Survey is the only source of information on the general aviation fleet, the number of hours flown, and the ways people use general aviation aircraft.
“This information helps determine funding for infrastructure and service needs and measures GA safety,” said Mark Larsen, CAM, NBAA’s senior manager of safety and flight operations. “The survey is also used to prepare safety statistics and calculate the rate of accidents among general aviation aircraft. The FAA needs member input to provide the most up-to-date stats available.”
Respondents may complete the survey online, or a survey form can be mailed along with a postage-paid envelope.
