CABA and Colorado Division of Aeronautics Celebrate Governor’s Proclamation of June as General Aviation Appreciation Month

The Colorado Aviation Business Association (CABA) and the Colorado Division of Aeronautics announced the release of Governor John Hickenlooper’s Proclamation declaring June 2017 to be General Aviation Appreciation Month.

For the seventh consecutive year, Governor Hickenlooper has honored aviation as a vital pillar of the state’s economy, supporting 265,700 jobs with a combined annual payroll of $12.6 billion.  Seventy-four business and general aviation airports and 447 heliports in Colorado together contribute $2.4 billion to Colorado’s economy through numerous revenue sources including corporate and charter flights, private and business aircraft operations, aircraft maintenance and repair, flight instruction, and fuel sales.

“The Division of Aeronautics is excited to celebrate June, 2017 as General Aviation Appreciation Month with all of those who are passionate and dedicated to maintaining and improving this essential mode of transportation in Colorado,” said David Ulane, Aeronautics Division Director.

CABA and the Division of Aeronautics have worked closely over the past seven years to support and promote business and general aviation in Colorado. CABA and the Division of Aeronautics have partnered with schools and colleges with aviation programs. CABA offers scholarships through its Foundation to provide financial assistance for training, and has disbursed over $50,000 in scholarships to 25 college and high school students over the past seven years.

“We applaud Governor Hickenlooper for recognizing the many benefits business and general aviation bring to Colorado,“ said Kandi Spangler, Chairman of CABA.
