Aviation impacts the state of Nebraska in multiple different ways. Nebraska Aviation Counts! will quantify airport's impact on local economies and the state as a whole. The mission of the Nebraska Division of Aeronautics is to encourage and facilitate the development and use of aviation throughout the state. This launch party will feature the elected officials from the state of Nebraska, Nebraska Department of Transportation, Nebraska Division of Aeronautics, Project Adviser Committee, the study design team and the study economist. Nebraska Aviation Counts! will collect data from airport users, tenants, and managers. This bon voyage event will encourage meaningful participation in this worthwhile endeavor.
