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.

In 2016, of the 2,262 aircraft delivered worldwide, 1,019 were piston-powered, 661 were jets and 582 were turboprops.
