General aviation forms a considerable component of any national airspace and airport system. As a result, insights into the general aviation industry are relevant to issues in air traffic management, air transportation infrastructure and aviation safety, among others. Beyond the operational aspect, general aviation is of significance to pilot groups, aircraft manufacturers and the workforce, along with larger portions of the economy as a whole.
In 2016, there were more than 416,000 general aviation aircraft in the worldwide fleet, ranging from small training aircraft and helicopters to intercontinental business jets.
