New Aviation Maintenance Industry Data Shows Huge Economic Impact on Florida

MIAMI, FLORIDA – ARSA Executive Vice President Christian Klein presented a new report this morning showing the aviation maintenance industry has a nearly $2.2 billion economic impact on the state of Florida. At an industry briefing before dozens of aviation maintenance professionals in the Miami area, Klein explained that the industry employs 18,873 highly-skilled engineers in Florida, the state with the fourth largest aviation maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) workforce.

“The aviation maintenance community’s impact on the Florida economy is hard to ignore,” Klein stated. “ARSA is working diligently to educate members of Congress from Florida and around the country to emphasize the aviation maintenance industry’s critical role in developing jobs and boosting state economies.”

Klein also discussed the association’s legislative priorities, recent regulatory actions, how to get the most out of ARSA membership, and how to help advance the interests of the aviation maintenance industry.
