The N.C. Division of Aviation last conducted a statewide study of the economic impact of airports in North Carolina in 1996. Significant investment of local, state, and federal dollars for infrastructure improvements at the airports has occurred over a 10year span. The Division of Aviation wanted to ascertain what change in economic impact had occurred since the previous study given these infrastructure improvements and other changes in aviation patterns and visible growth, particularly for general aviation airports. This project examined the current economic impact of aviation services for the 74 publicly-owned airports in North Carolina, both on the statewide and the local, county levels.
