All In on General Aviation

ALL IN Aviation has a story similar
to a lot of small businesses in 2020.
They came into the year with a new
facility and a lot of high hopes for the
company. Then COVID-19 hit putting
everything in flux.
The aviation industry has been hit harder than
most since the pandemic collapsed the economy. But
All In's new facility at Henderson Executive Airport
isn't a ghost town. In fact, it has added staff and even
recently brought two new Cessna 172 Skyhawks in
its fleet.
All In President Paul Sallach told me he was shocked
by the boom in business. But a lot of people who
now have extra time on their hands are pursing their
pilot's licenses and ticking a goal off their bucket list.
General aviation is experiencing a quiet renaissance
among the industry. More businesses are using private
flying to get around without worrying about safety. In
turn, more people learning to fly addresses concerns
of less pilots supporting the industry.

The growth also means more jobs. Sallach told
me he added more instructors and hired more line
techs to take care of sanitation of the airplanes. An
industry once wanting for labor is now overflowing.
The additional aircraft allows All In to provide
a more palatable price point for more aspiring pilots
while still supplying modern aircraft to teach them with.
A better price point means more potential customers.
Sallach said the surge in business inspired his
company look at long-term diversification of services
going forward, such as aircraft storage. After the current
training boom ends, it allows flight schools like All
In to capitalize on its new customer base and ensure
it thrives long after the pandemic is a distant, terrible
The Catch-22 of general aviation success in the
decimated industry can be tough to celebrate knowing
so many more colleagues across the airfield are suffering
through the pandemic. But if nothing
else, the success of companies like All In
shows the seeds of a bright post-COVID
world are being planted and cultivating
now so the entire aviation industry will
grow back stronger then it ever was.
