In May, Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts proclaimed “General Appreciation Month,” noting that “many communities in Nebraska depend heavily on general aviation and community airports for the continued flow of commerce, tourism and visitors.”
Nebraska is home to 71 fixed-base operators, 12 repair stations and three FAA-approved pilot schools. The state has 80 public-use airports, serving nearly 3,500 Nebraska pilots and more than 2,000 general aviation aircraft.
“General aviation is vital to many businesses in Nebraska that use general aviation aircraft and local airports to increase productivity, reach far-off markets and to move personnel, equipment and products,” the proclamation states.
