As a fellow aviator, our goal is to provide you with hopefully entertaining and to some extent, useful content in this section of the website. We also encourage you to leave comments on the topics we post here. You will need a WordPress account to do that however.
“General aviation continues to be a positive contributor to our nation’s economy and benefits thousands of communities,” said AOPA President Mark Baker. “We must also continue working together to inspire the next generation of pilots and aircraft technicians and recognize this uniquely American industry and its exceptional impact on our country.”
At Mix Aircraft Solutions, we constantly strive to keep abreast of meaningful trends that affect the industry. One notable report by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, “Contribution of General Aviation to the US Economy in 2018” found that 61% of around 200,000 general aviation aircraft ran on single engine pistons. What does this mean to the general aviator? It means that these planes will continue to rely on expertise from aviation mechanics to keep their planes in the air. Unfortunately, skilled technicians are declining in numbers. It is up to industry professionals like us to maintain high standards and promote the craft when we can.
