Abstract : This research revealed that general aviation aircraft are a useful tool in the construction industry. Many construction companies employ aircraft in the performance of their daily operations and business. The following uses, in order of frequency of reported use, were: Executive mobility, Site investigation, Personnel transport, Parts & equipment expediting, Photo & observation platform, and Heavy lift operations. Of these, the first five fall generally in the construction support function while the last is the only direct construction operational use identified for GA aircraft. The type of projects for which aircraft are most often reported being used includes highway, dam and heavy earthwork projects. The predominant type of aircraft being used was the multi-engine airplane f ollowed in frequency by the single-engine airplane and then the helicopter.
