NOTES: These data are derived from a sample survey of general aviation and air taxi aircraft. The estimates are subject to sampling and nonsampling error. Beginning in 2007, the survey asked the state in which the aircraft was primarily flown rather than where the aircraft was based. Columns may not add to totals due to rounding procedures.
