It's a fact. Air Charter Services industry means jobs. From the smallest U.S. towns and sparsely populated counties, to the largest American cities and states, private jets play an important role in local and regional economies. From aircraft manufacturing and airport related jobs, and through the purchase of goods and services by firms involved in the manufacture, operation and maintenance of private jets, business aviation is a major economic driver throughout the United States.

  • Private Jet industry contributes $150 billion annually to the U.S. economy
  • More than 1.2 million people are employed in the U.S. in this industry
  • The majority of the world's business aircraft are operated, serviced and maintained in the U.S., creating jobs in every state
In some states and regions, the industry is a significant generator of employment and local investment. Look to Kansas, where aviation accounts for $7.1 billion, nearly one-third of the state's economy. Aircraft manufacturer's based in Wichita account for the majority of the activity. But even smaller states such as Rhode Island, have an annual contribution around $460 for every resident in the state.
These are small samples of the great economic contribution that the private jet industry provides. Not only are the aircraft manufactured in the U.S., many are exported. Of the aircraft that are manufactured outside of the U.S., many are imported for final assembly.
