It also found 57% of the companies using private aviation have under 500 employees and 62% have just one aircraft.

How Private Jets Support Small Communities Lacking Good Airline Service

Good air service is a key to economic development, but more U.S. cities lose commercial airline service each year. However, private aviation bridges the gap.

 

Business aviation provides a critical transportation lifeline to thousands of communities all across the U.S. that have little or no airline service. Some 41% of business aircraft are flown to towns with little or no air service. Research by No Plane No Gain, an advocacy group, points out when a company needs to reach clients, manage far-flung facilities, or seek out new opportunities, business aviation is often the only viable option.
