Crosswinds Aviation is a founding sponsor of the Livingston County Airshow because we believe in changing people’s lives through aviation. We are committed to exposing as many people as possible to the pure pleasure, personal growth, careers, and business advantages that being in and around aviation have to offer. This is especially true when it comes to kids in the area. We know there are many kids out there who would thrive in the aviation industry, if they were only exposed to it. We feel it’s our role as a local flight school to make that happen. We are seeing more kids start their career in aviation every year and it’s incredibly satisfying to know that we had a part to play in that.
Also, most people don’t realize the economic activity our beautiful airport brings to the local community. Quoted from the airport’s official website (https://www.livgov.com/airport/) “A Community Benefits Assessment, a type of economic impact study, was conducted in 1994 to try to quantify the benefits the community receives from the airport. In economic terms, the benefits to the community included $1.5 million in direct economic impacts and over $25.1 million in total economic benefits to the community. Additional community benefits can be seen in law enforcement, emergency medical transportation, and career training for future aeronautical careers.” In addition, business make decisions about where to locate based on an airport with good facilities. Our airport attracts businesses to the local area creating more jobs and economic activity every year.
For these reasons it’s incredibly important to get the local community out to our airport and see all the great opportunities that it has to offer, and there is no better way to do that than an airshow. People from our community will see why we love to fly and will have the opportunity to become more educated about the aviation industry while having great entertainment. This event will be free to the public, so the whole community has a chance to see this amazing show.
Airshows take an immense amount of time and money to organize and pay for the airshow acts. We hope that the Livingston County Airshow will become an annual event for this community that people will look forward to, and won’t want to miss. We are already looking forward to an even bigger and better Airshow in 2016 and we need your help to make it possible!
