Aviation

The impact of Aviation on the 4th largest city in the U.S. cannot be overstated. From training the next generation of pilots and maintenance technicians to connecting the world through two international airports and a strong business aviation and general aviation community, Houston is home to a vibrant Aviation ecosystem with the infrastructure necessary to support continued growth. 

Business Climate

A strong aviation infrastructure allows the Houston Airport System to service over 60 million passengers and have direct flights to 193 destinations globally. That contributes to a thriving economy with a strong business aviation community. Whether expanding or relocating your MRO or FBO network, aircraft manufacturing/assembly facility, airline operations, advanced air mobility operation, or relocating your corporate flight department, the Houston Region has the airport infrastructure and knowledge base to support your future plans.
