Throughout the country there are mostly small, Community airports create jobs for area residents in aviation related businesses on and near the airport. Flight schools, aircraft repair of private jets, fixed based operators, etc. as well as businesses indirectly related to the airfield. These include restaurants, hotels, car rentals, shopping, hotels and others. public use airports that are used by business aircraft and are key to the local economy, providing jobs, local investment and economic activity to the communities.

These employers generate much needed tax revenues for cities, counties and states. Local airports help keep existing employers in a community and attract new business eager to capitalize on the market. User fees on general aviation will dampen the amount of traffic and potentially will have a negative impact on several airports, employers and employees throughout the country.

For an examples of the economic power of these smaller airports look at Leesburg Executive Airport (KJYO) in Virginia. It is located 37 miles from D.C. and has approximately two dozen twin pistons, five helicopters and a half dozen jets.  Leesburg has one runway, four flight schools and one fixed based operator. Not a big operation in size, but the economic impact is estimated at $42 million to the regional economy and provides 612 jobs.

Private jets and the related business are a major economic engine in the U.S. with most of the revenue generated from the regional small airports. User fees would restrict aircraft movement, make users select different routes to maximize distance, potentially passing by the smaller airports and communities dependent on them.
