Some industry numbers from Cessna

I've just been listening to a short presentation from a Cessna Senior VP. He came up with some interesting numbers that I thought I'd share.

In the USA, GA is thought to:
- employ, directly or indirectly, 1,250,000 people
- contribute $155 billion to the economy
- have a payroll of $55 billion, so some big salaries in there if that's true!

Cessna, in particular, has over the years built 192,000 aeroplanes, some of which have been used to train about half of the world's pilots.
