Michael J. Pantelides, Mayor of the City of Annapolis and Governor Larry Hogan have declared September 2015 as  “General Aviation and Community Airport Month”.  This announcement recognizes the value and importance of the airport transportation system in Maryland.  A recently completed airport economic impact study by the Maryland Aviation Administration showed the general aviation airports in Maryland contribute positively to jobs, individual and business incomes as well as to  local and State taxes.
