airplaneThe FAA’s 34th annual General Aviation and Part 135 Survey for 2011 data is underway and available online at www.aviationsurvey.org

“Reducing GA fatalities is a top priority of the FAA and our goal is to reduce the GA fatal accident rate by 10 percent by 2018,” said FAA Acting Administrator Michael Huerta. “By taking the time to participate in the FAA’s GA survey, owners and operators share valuable data that help the entire GA community.” 

The survey is the only source of information on the activities of the GA fleet, including number of hours flown, and the reasons people fly. Data collected from the survey help determine funding for infrastructure and service needs, assess the impact of regulatory changes, and measure aviation safety. The survey is also used to prepare safety statistics and calculate the rate of accidents among GA aircraft.  Responses are private. The information will be used only for statistical purposes and will not be published or released in any form that would reveal an individual participant. Owners who did not fly their aircraft in 2011, have sold it, or are awaiting repairs should also respond to the survey. 

Aircraft owners and operators who received a postcard invitation or survey by mail should respond as soon as possible by completing the survey on-line at www.aviationsurvey.org (use aircraft N-Number to login) or by mail with the postage-paid envelope. The survey closes on November 30, 2012.

An abbreviated survey form is also available for owners of multiple aircraft. If you own three or more aircraft and receive several survey forms, please call toll-free at 888-672-4493 or e-mail at infoaviation@aviationsurvey.org.
