FAA readies annual GA surveyFAA readies annual GA survey

The FAA is preparing to launch its fortieth annual General Aviation and Part 135 Activity Survey. Pilots who receive an emailed or mailed invitation to participate are strongly encouraged to do so because the confidential data the survey collects provides the only source of information on the GA fleet and activity.

Moving up

Pilots who receive an invitation to participate can complete the survey online or receive a survey form in the mail along with a postage-paid envelope. Completing the survey takes 10 to 15 minutes.

The survey helps determine infrastructure funding and service needs, assess regulatory changes, and measure aviation safety. The survey is also used to prepare safety statistics and calculate the rate of accidents among GA aircraft.

Tetra Tech, the independent research firm conducting the GA survey for the FAA, urges invited pilots to respond, even if you did not fly your aircraft during 2017, if you sold it, or if the aircraft was damaged.

Responses are confidential, and the information will only be used for statistical purposes. It will not be published or released in any form that would identify an individual participant.

Previous years’ survey results are available on the FAA's website. For more information contact Tetra Tech toll-free at 800-826-1797 or by email.
