The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) and the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) released the findings of the latest survey conducted by The Harris Poll.
“The Real World of Business Aviation: 2018 Survey of Companies Using General Aviation Aircraft” represents a statistically valid representation of the use of business aircraft. The following are among the survey’s key findings:
“Since 2009, we’ve said, ‘No Plane No Gain,’ and this updated survey confirms the power of the slogan,” said GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce. “General aviation aircraft are indispensable business productivity tools, allowing flexibility, connectivity and efficiency. But they are also on the front line, providing an essential transportation and supply link for those in need around the world.”
“Once again, we see that business aviation is a vital tool for companies of all sizes, enabling passengers to use their travel time for more effectively and efficiently than alternatives, while also providing critical lift to smaller communities and areas in need of emergency relief,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen.
The Harris Poll conducted 202 online interviews of pilots, flight department managers and directors of flight operations or aviation for this survey, with 276 interviews among passengers on business aircraft. Its findings are in line with previous Harris Poll surveys in 1997, 2009 and 2015.
