Using general aviation aircraft and flying on it is not that complicated thing for simple people like us.

General aviation performance is satisfying and is improving every year. After WW2 private and business flight number increased drastically and by the number of accidents decreased by 85% (7 accidents in 100,000 flight hours). The latest statistics results show that general aviation flight number became more than 20 million hours of flight in one year.

90% of 220,000 aircrafts registered in the U.S. are general aviation aircrafts, 500,000 pilots out of 600,000 pilots are general aviation pilots.

General aviation is one of the biggest industries with the profit of 20 billion dollars a year, and makes 150 billion dollars economic turnover. General aviation flight revenues make positive impact on domestic airport development and domestic economy.


General Aviation is defined by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as "all civil aviation operations other than scheduled air services and non-scheduled air transport operations for remuneration or hire".

On the other hand, mail delivery, visiting home on weekend, checking the construction progress in distant area, fertilization, air patrolling all are the part of general aviation.

It is difficult to list all positive impacts of general aviation here.

65% of general aviation flights cannot be conducted by airline companies, it requires more flexible business and government air transport service. This can allow a businessman to organize small meeting in location 1000km far in one day and to make meeting with 5 staff on 10,000m height in an aircraft. This journey could take at least 4 days by airline scheduled flight and 3 days in hotel and the second meeting could not be possible to organize without the general aviation.

If you have family car or family/rent aircraft you can travel anywhere together. Also its fun to travel by air rather than land travel, not worrying about traffic jam and it takes a short time.

People think that only rich people can afford small business aircrafts. In reality its even cheaper to buy small aircraft rather than buying new expensive car.


Donor blood, organs are transported by the general aviation flight and first aid flight serves in emergency situation. There are some situation where personal aircraft can be used to transport patients that cannot be moved by land to the hospitals in distance. There are volunteer pilot council who provides such service for free.

Using helicopters to transport patients in the most important 2 hours after disaster and emergency situation can increase two times the probability to save patient’s life.


The number of people who admit general aviation flight flexibility, effectiveness, safety and new opportunity is slowly increasing. You can travel any destination, anytime with the general aviation flight which makes it quicker and more effective. Its supporting economic development and providing necessary service for the public.


General aviation aircraft is used efficiently for wildlife environment research, mapping, following bird flow, conservancy, explore petrol pipe damage etc..

The main tool to fight against wildfire was always general aviation. Helicopters and aircrafts with water storing and showering tanks are protecting the forests and buildings against wildfire every year.


General aviation pilots are providing information about road/car accidents, traffic jam to the public, police, ambulance and fire fighters.

Photos taken from the aircraft are used and processed for city planning, engineering industry by government agencies


They save time and money by transporting checks and receipts before the next day in banking industry.

Moreover, they provide transport service to deliver urgent documents, mail to organizations, people, factory and banks where big airline companies don’t have scheduled flights.


Agriculture pilots are protecting 75 million hectares of agriculture fields which is increasing harvest. It also helps in plantation process for example, in the U.S 95% of white rice is planted from the air. Herders and farmers are also need general aviation for their plantation of grass and herding.

Therefore, general aviation was working closely with agriculture sector from very early time and further this cooperation should develop and improve.


General aviation aircraft can be used for law enforcement across the country or domestically. For example, using helicopters or small light weight aircrafts for controlling highway, catch the suspect, support land units, implement state border control. In Los Angeles police with helicopter detected over 30,000 violation (3.8 per hour), in a result they arrested 3,500 and detected 1,354 suspects a year.

And found 747 stolen cars, reported 205 fire cases.


General aviation is one of the key air transportations of the country other than scheduled airline flights because many people take this air taxi from thousands of little cities to cities without scheduled flights. Business, cargo/mail and private flights can be operated by customers request anytime.

75% of big airline company flights are made from 46 big cities. 70% of passengers of airline companies fly to and from 30 big hub airports. For example, in the U.S. only 560 airports have permit for scheduled flights with aircrafts that has more than 30 seats. However, private or state 19,600 landing areas, airports can be used by general aviation.
