If you have any questions about the rules, or about Air Mail in general, please email webmaster@nbaa.org.

Do not engage in personal attacks or create a hostile environment.

Members may disagree, but should interact with fellow Members in a professional, courteous and respectful manner. “Trolling” – posting inflammatory or extraneous messages to provoke or antagonize others – is not permitted. Members who engage in practices that discourage open, collaborative discussion may be suspended from Air Mail.

Do not post offensive messages or links.

Air Mail is a professional forum. Do not post anything that is profane, hateful, discriminatory or obscene.

Do not post unsolicited commercial appeals or promotions.

Unsolicited marketing messages may not be sent to Air Mail. However, the posting of commercial appeals or promotions in response to legitimate Member inquiries is allowed as a Member service. Also, Member Companies that wish to post charter availability announcements and other messages that are sales/marketing in nature may do so only via the "Charter Availability" Air Mail list.

Do not post messages regarding commercial disputes.

While Air Mail is an acceptable forum for commentary on the performance of aviation vendors, it is not appropriate to initiate commentary regarding specific business or legal disagreements. Members should privately resolve such matters.

Do not post messages regarding prices, fees, or other competitively sensitive aspects of business.

Member may not discuss the prices or fees that they pay or charge, the customers or suppliers with which they do business, the terms on which they do business with them or other third parties, or other competitively sensitive aspects of individual business operations. It is also a violation of NBAA policy to suggest what your or others' policies should or may be on these subjects.

Do not post commentary unrelated to aviation.

Air Mail was established for the exchange of professional aviation information among NBAA Members. Off-topic messages, including purely partisan political discussion, is not permitted.

Do not harvest email addresses from Air Mail for marketing purposes.

Members who receive email marketing messages and believe that their information was obtained through Air Mail should notify webmaster@nbaa.org.

Do not use “NBAA” in your email address or displayed name, or otherwise falsely represent yourself.

Including NBAA in your email address or “handle” creates confusion and the impression that your posts are endorsed by the Association. It is volition of the Air Mail rules to impersonate someone else or otherwise obscure your identity.

Do not republish the content of Air Mail messages without permission of the message author and NBAA.

Air Mail posts may not be republished without the permission of both NBAA and the original author or authors.

Do not forward copyrighted material to Air Mail unless you have permission to do so.

As a general rule, NBAA Members should not distribute or incorporate material that had been retrieved or copied from another website or publication, unless usage of such material meets the legal definition of “fair use” or you have received permission from the copyright owner.

Do not cross-post messages.

Please do not post the same message on multiple lists. Cross-posting will clutter inboxes for Air Mail Listserv subscribers, and create duplicate, incomplete discussions in Air Mail Forums. Usually there is one list that is appropriate for your question or topic. If you are unsure where to post your message, please email webmaster@nbaa.org. Note: NBAA may send Air Mail administration messages to multiple lists. 

Do not post charter availability posts and trip requests to NBAA Air Mail lists other than the Charter Availability announcement list..

Charter availability posts (i.e. one ways) and trip requests may be posted only to the Charter Availability announcement list.

Do not post resumes or job openings to lists other than the Contract Jobs Air Mail list.

Announcements of available short-term and fill-in contract positions, or your availability for these types of roles, may be posted only to the Contract Jobs Air Mail list. Resumes, job openings and contract employee announcements may not be posted on other Air Mail lists. The Business Aviation Jobs resource is the primary venue for full-time business aviation opportunities and candidate resumes.
