Economic Impact

There is no one document that can provide total insight of all the economic implications of upgrading the Zelienople Airport. Our approach, in this section, is to offer copies of pertinent, official documents. Click on the title to view it. Suggestions and contributions for additional material will be most welcome.


"The Economic Impact of Aviation" is a 12-page brochure published by the PA Bureau of Aviation in late 2011. It identifies the annual impact of the Butler County Airport (businesses on the airport and/or associated with aviation activities) as $39+ million. The Zelienople Airport is expected to exceed this amount, when upgraded, because of its close proximity to Interstate 79 and the availability of land acquisitions.


"The Economic Impact of Aviation - Technical Report" is a 141-page report that details the above brochure.
