NBAA's New Connectivity Subcommittee Begins Work on Standards
Business aviation passengers expect to be able to work productively on the way to their destination, and that has sparked an ongoing revolution in data and voice connectivity. But, more connectivity means more people have to make more decisions about capabilities, standards and training. That's where NBAA's new Connectivity Subcommittee comes in. Part of NBAA's Maintenance Committee, the group recently met to begin discussions on establishing guidelines, noting that lack of standardization may be the biggest element that drives problems with technology in the cabin. This week's NBAA Flight Plan podcast has the story.

Operators Need to Be Aware of Coming Airspace Changes
What can operators do to ease the transition to the upcoming airspace changes? "First and foremost, file your flight plan in the ICAO format," suggested John Kosak, an NBAA Air Traffic Services specialist. The ICAO form has a place to indicate the NAVCOM capabilities of an aircraft. The WTM/Northeastern U.S. Airspace Redesign relies heavily on RNAV routing. If operators are unable to accept an RNAV routing, it is imperative air traffic control (ATC) knows that. "Those without RNAV can still operate, just file an ICAO flight plan so ATC is aware of your aircraft's limitations," he added. Learn more about these widespread airspace changes.

‘Climb Via’ Causing Confusion
The challenges surrounding climb via are twofold, according to Rich Boll, chair of the Airspace, ATC and Flight Technologies Working Group of the NBAA Access Committee. "Early on, FAA made a decision to apply this phraseology to all SIDs with a top altitude," he said. "In the cases where there are no altitude restrictions below the top altitude, ATC is using climb via phraseology. That wasn't the intent." That has led to the second challenge – confusion in the cockpit, diluting what Boll said was the original intent of the phraseology. Learn more about the use of climb via phraseology.

China is planning a city called Superior Aviation Town, which would be home to a general aviation airport with a 7,800-foot-long runway, and a convention center dedicated to general aviation.

More Airports Seeing Need for General Aviation Customs Facilities
Determining whether a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facility is appropriate for an airport begins with reaching out to local CBP officials, said Greg Kulis, a business aviation pilot and past chairman of the NBAA Security Council. NBAA can help facilitate that discussion, as well as provide guidance on performing a needs assessment to determine whether such a facility is appropriate. "If the airport sees 300 to 400 international business operations each year, then there's a definite need," Kulis said. Learn more about CBP facilities.

IS-BAO Improved Annually Through Operator Input
To keep IS-BAO up-to-date, annual calls for suggestions are taken to the IS-BAO Standards Board, which is populated by members of the business aviation community. This ensures that this international code of best practices remains a product "for the industry, by the industry." Some ideas are technical, while others are procedural, noted IS-BAO Program Director Sonnie Bates. "“But no matter where they come from, they go through the same process as they rise to the level of consideration by the standards board." Learn more about how you can help improve IS-BAO.

New Aircraft Transactions Guide a Useful Tool for Smaller Operations
When developing its new Aircraft Transactions Guide, NBAA wanted to ensure that it was relevant and useful to company flight operations of all sizes, and in fact the guide is especially useful to smaller flight departments and owner-operators, reports Scott O'Brien, NBAA's senior manager for finance and tax policy. "You may not have a staff of in-house attorneys or accountants, so the guide will give you an idea of the right questions to ask," he said. O'Brien also pointed out that the guide is a useful resource for in-house attorneys who may know everything about their companies but perhaps are not as familiar with the intricacies of aircraft transactions.

Likewise, they aren't afraid to speak up when they see mistakes are about to happen."
