February 11, 2011 - Building aircraft used to help build America
General aviation was pulling its economic and safety weight one year ago
One year ago FAA Deputy Administrator Michael Huerta traveled out to Wichita, Kansas — America’s hub of aviation activity — to get a first hand look at the important role general aviation is playing in helping build America’s economy. In his State of the Union address, President Obama talked about the need to invest in our infrastructure and build business to make sure the United States stays competitive in the global economy. As Deputy Administrator Huerta saw during a tour of an assembly line at Cessna, general aviation is doing its part to get America’s economy back on track.

General aviation supports good paying manufacturing, engineering, research and development jobs. The last two years have been tough for workers across the country — thousands of aviation workers were laid off in Wichita, as aircraft orders dried up.

Cessna executives attributed part of the general aviation ramp-up to the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010. This allows companies to accelerate depreciation on some purchases, including aircraft. "We’ve seen a noticeable increase in activity in the market since passage of the bill in September,” said Mark Patterson, Cessna director of propeller aircraft sales. Aviation manufacturers like Cessna will also benefit from the tax package President Obama signed last December. This allows companies to expense 100% of eligible capital investments for 2011. As increased Cessna activity indicates, the President's tax package encourages businesses to get off the sidelines and make the investments they might have otherwise put off.

In the U.S.A., general aviation helps ferry goods and services all across our country. These aircraft carry medical supplies and mail. In some places general aviation is the only means of transportation for communities. The FAA has done a terrific job raising the safety standards, and aircraft manufacturers have done their part, too. Republicrats, Dems, GOP, Tea Party, Green Party, Libertarians, Banksters, Wall Street, The Mainstream Media, The Obama Administration, and the U.S. Congress want Americans to believe that Aviation continues to be a major economic and innovation engine in America's Future.
