The Economic Impact of Civil Aviation on the U.S. Economy: State Supplement

This report supplements Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) publication The Economic Impact of Civil Aviation on the U.S. Economy, released in January 2020. The Economic Impact Report, or The National Report, presents economic statistics on the impact of the industry on the U.S. economy at the national level for the year 2016. This supplement, also known as The State Report, examines the impact of the industry at the state level, a comparison of impacts across states, the state-level enabling impacts, and FAA spending impacts for 2016. As a result, the statistics and any conclusions contained in this report do not reflect the impact of COVID-19, but future reports will reflect the impact of COVID-19 as related to state impacts when the data becomes available. The State Report provides snapshots of aviation-related economic activity for all 50 states and the District of Columbia during calendar year 2016 based on data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). The report is organized as follows: The first section covers the economic performance of state economies. The second section briefly examines state-level economic impacts of the civil aviation industry by the type of expenditure categories included in The National Report. These expenditure categories are: airline operations, airport operations, general aviation, aircraft manufacturing, avionics manufacturing, research and development, air couriers, visitor expenditures, and travel arrangements. State-level estimates of enabling effects, or economic activities which depend on air transportation, appear in the third section. Estimates of the impact of FAA spending in each state are presented in the fourth section. Fifty-one fact sheets, one for each state and the District of Columbia, are in Appendix A.
