An update of the Florida Statewide Aviation Economic Impact Study conducted by FDOT began in October 2016 and completed in March 2019. This March 2019 report, prepared as part of the update to the Florida Aviation System Plan (FASP), provides the estimated, annual economic impact associated with 20 commercial service airports, 100 public-use general aviation airports, and in addition, 11 military aviation facilities on the economy of the State of Florida. This study includes economic impacts of various on-airport and off-airport aviation related activities. Economic benefits in this study are expressed as direct, indirect, and induced (multiplier) impacts. For each of these measures, economic benefits are expressed in terms of total annual economic activity (output), employments, and payroll (earnings).
