Aviation week marked

July 20 to 26 will be recognized across the Badger State as Wisconsin Aviation Week.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin (TDA) are teaming up to promote, educate and celebrate the state’s aviation industry.

“Wisconsin’s airport system plays an important role in the state’s transportation network,” said DOT Secretary Mark Gottlieb in a press release. “It handles the needs of business, passenger, freight and recreational air transportation and enhances the economic vitality of Wisconsin’s communities.”

In 2014, 4.9 million people boarded commercial flights in Wisconsin. In addition, more than 119 million pounds of cargo were transported by air last year.

“Wisconsin’s aviation industry links our state’s residents and businesses to larger national and global markets,” said Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin Executive Director Craig Thompson in a press release.

Wisconsin’s aviation system includes more than 722 landing facilities– 127 of which are public-use airports. In addition to the state’s commitment to high-quality aviation facilities, the industry’s workforce is moving Wisconsin forward.
