Participate in the FAA Annual GA Survey

The FAA is in the midst of conducting its annual General Aviation and Part 135 Activity Survey, the only source of information for the agency to determine the ways people use recreational and business aircraft. The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete, so if you have been invited to participate, please fill it out so the FAA can better understand the impact of the GA industry on jobs and economic output, and determine investments in aviation infrastructure.

As always, participation in the GA Survey is confidential, with data aggregated into categories by a third party. Individually-identifiable responses are never shared with the FAA or any other organization. For more information, call 800-826-1797 or email
