About ACAA

The ACAA is open to anyone who has an interest in the Anoka County-Blaine airport.  For information on how to join, visit the Join ACAA page. As a working airfield we need a greater exposure to the public and to promote our value to the community.

 

Goals:

 ·   Awareness campaign to open the gate on our potential

       in bringing economic growth to the airport.

 ·   Promote the economic impact of our airfield to our

       community during and through airfield events.

 ·   Promote a greater participation in aviation education.

 ·   Raise awareness of career opportunities.

 

General aviation is the largest part of the aviation industry.  There are over 5,100 general aviation airports nationwide where general aviation aircraft can land to conduct business.  There are only 500 airports nationwide that have air carrier service.  Seventy percent of all airline flights go through only 30 airports.

 

Airports provide jobs and bring money to our community where we live.  Minnesota’s airports contribute more than $12.1 billion to the state’s economy and provides nearly 165,000 jobs that produce $6.4 billion in labor income.  Minnesota’s small and medium airports bring more than $433 million to the state’s economy. 4,000 jobs in these small to medium airports produce approximately $184 million in labor income.
