FAA Launches 34th Annual General Aviation Survey

Fall 2012

On September 10, 2012, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced the start of its 34th annual General Aviation and Part 135 Survey for 2011 data.  The survey is available online at and closes on November 30, 2012.

FAA and other aviation industry groups are encouraging all aircraft owners and operators, including those who did not fly or who sold their aircraft in 2011, to take part in the survey.  Data collected from the survey, which is treated as private, helps the FAA to determine funding for infrastructure and service needs, assess the impact of regulatory changes and measure aviation safety. The survey is also used to prepare safety statistics and calculate the rate of accidents among general aviation aircraft.  An abbreviated survey form is also available for owners of multiple aircraft.
