No Plane, No Gain!TM

In 2005, the Texas Department of Transportation, TxDOT, undertook a study of the impact and relationship of airports in Texas with the statewide economy. We found that Texas aviation provides over 61,000 jobs, with 2.5 billion in payroll and 8.7 billion in total economic output.

Texas has two of the top 10 busiest airports in the nation. It also has 303 public, general-aviation airports and 23 commercial service airports. Airports help meet our transportation needs and also stimulate economic growth in the local community by providing revenue, jobs and wages.

More information can be learned by visiting our Resources page, the Fly Texas page for tourism information and of the sort, and for those interested in jobs, well... Jobs!
