Florida could gain about 300 jobs and millions of dollars in economic growth by reducing or eliminating the sales tax on aircraft, according to a new study commissioned by NBAA and the Florida Aviation Business Association. The study estimates elimination of the sales tax would result in the sale of 354 additional aircraft worth a total of $246 million each year. Florida is among 15 states analyzed in the study that tax the sale of airplanes and rotorcraft at the rate of 6 percent, resulting in a loss of aircraft sales in the state.

"Every pilot can benefit from better understanding local procedures and learning more efficient ways to navigate complex and busy airspace in which they regularly fly," said Doug Carr, NBAA's vice president of regulatory and international affairs.
