Nebraska Aviation Counts! Airport Manager Survey

The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) launched a study to measure the economic value of Nebraska airports to their communities and to the state. This study’s purpose is to collect information to help measure economic impacts of individual airports and the State’s airport system. An important part of this study involves surveying airport management. The information provided in this survey will be used to prepare this analysis as well as quantify how airports impact Nebraska’s economy.

To make this project successful, accurate data is needed in order to properly determine the economic impact of Nebraska’s aviation industry. The information that is provided on these surveys is the basis of this study. As such your participation is greatly appreciated and crucial to the success of this study. We ask that you please review this survey and provide a completed version to us no later than October 30, 2018. We will be following up on this survey in the next few weeks to answer any questions that you may have.

(Please note: Responses will be aggregated and summarized, so no specific details will be reported. Information concerning small airports will be aggregated to avoid specifically identifying a single employee or small employer.)
