Massachusetts is the third most densely populated state in the country, and one of the most visited places for tourists and Red Sox fans. The historic landmarks draw thousands of visitors – from the original Plymouth Colony to sites important to the American Revolution, visitors flock to learn more about America’s history.
In addition to tourism, agriculture and farming are important to Massachusetts’ economy. General aviation plays a key role in all sectors – helping farmers keep their crops pest-free and transporting tourists to their destination. The commercial and general aviation airports regulated by the FAA create jobs and help stimulate the economy.
Boston Air Travel
The Greater Boston area holds the majority of Massachusetts’ population. Logan International Airport serves Boston and nearby residents and is the largest airport in New England. JetBlue Airways calls Boston one of its focus cities. The commuter airline, PenAir, has its hub at Logan International Airport. The proximity to New York and Canada, and the increased international traffic means Boston is a hotspot for aviation traffic.
Logan International Airport is a hub for incoming students of the world class universities located in Massachusetts. Mount Holyoke College, the first women’s college in the United States, is located 90 miles outside of Boston. Harvard University, located in Cambridge, is less than 10 miles away from Logan International Airport. In addition to traditional universities, Massachusetts also offers training to potential pilots in numerous flight schools across the state.
