US Flight Data


Good afternoon,

I’m looking for information on the total number of flights, commercial and GA, which took place in the US for 2012. Some older forum posts on other sites suggest that FlightAware used to compile this data. Does the site still do so, and if so, where do I find it? Thanks much for your assistance,



Try the FAA Administrator’s Fact Book.

The link, however, seems to be only updated through June 2012… … _factbook/

The Administrator’s Fact Book provides data and statistics for:

Aviation Accidents and Incidents
Air Traffic Activity
Airports Activity
Aircraft Activity
Active Airmen
Commercial Space Transportation
Industry Trends
Labor Relations


Thanks - that was what I was looking for.

#4 might also be a good resource.
