NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Alliance for Aviation Across America (AAAA) released proclamations emphasizing the essential role of general aviation.
North Adams Harriman-and-West Airport was included by the AAA, a nonpartisan, nonprofit, national grassroots coalition of over 7,000 aviation and non-aviation groups and individuals across the country, including businesses, FBOs, small airports, elected officials, agricultural and charitable organizations, and leading industry and aviation groups.
According to a press release, in Massachusetts alone, general aviation airports contribute more than $630 million to the economy each year and support thousands of jobs and are critical to supporting the state's infrastructure, serving as reliever airports and ensuring access to critical services, among other benefits.
"General aviation is more than just a mode of transportation, it is a lifeline for communities and businesses across Massachusetts," said Selena Shilad, Executive Director at the Alliance for Aviation Across America.
