• Aeronautics is an integral part of our transportation system, moving people and goods throughout the world. The airports that support these activities are significant assets and highly important to Michigan’s economy. We now compete globally for opportunities to attract jobs. Good airports play a notable role as people and businesses consider Michigan as a place to live and work. Business growth in Michigan depends on the aviation system being safe and efficient. The estimated economic impact of aviation in Michigan is more than $22 billion annually.

    Aeronautics Mission Statement:
