FAA GA and Part 135 Activity Survey – Due Nov 30th

faaDear Aircraft Owner: The Federal Aviation Administration is conducting the 34th annual General Aviation (GA) and Part 135 Activity Survey for calendar year 2011. Your participation will allow the FAA to measure the size and activity of the general aviation fleet and better understand how people use general aviation aircraft. The survey also allows us to track the success of our safety initiatives, identify areas for improvement, focus our resources, and better serve the GA community.

The online survey is the only source for this important information. The information collected will be aggregated and used by government agencies, industry, trade associations, and private businesses. These organizations use the data to pinpoint safety problems and to form the basis for critical research and analysis of general aviation issues.

Submission of this form is voluntary. The information provided will be used only for statistical purposes and will not be published or released in any form that would reveal specific information reported by an individually identifiable respondent. The FAA has contracted with GA Survey, an independent research firm, to conduct the survey. The contractor is responsible for mailing out the surveys, processing responses, analyzing the results, and maintaining custody of your individual responses.

Regardless of whether you used this aircraft frequently in 2011, did not use this aircraft at all, or filled out a similar survey about this aircraft in past years, your response for 2011 is important. I urge you to complete the questionnaire today.
