WASHINGTON, DC, June 4, 2007 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today announced the launch of its first-ever Online Directory of Member Companies, Aircraft & Personnel, providing Members with access to real-time information, 24/7.

For decades, the printed version of the NBAA Directory of Member Companies, Aircraft & Personnel has been considered the most comprehensive guide to business aviation resources in the industry, providing a networking tool to thousands of business aviation professionals on a global scale. The new Online Directory, located at www.nbaa.org/directory, takes this already invaluable reference to the next level.

"For over 60 years, NBAA has been setting industry standards with tools that have helped our Member Companies succeed," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. "Now, with this highly anticipated resource, NBAA Members will be able to connect with best practices, explore new business partnerships and strengthen their resources from their computer at work, at home or on the road.

"In addition, our Online Directory will be kept up-to-date throughout the year, so that our Members will always have access to the very latest information NBAA has on our industry," Bolen said.

For ease of use, the printed Directory sorts Member data into several different lists, including by company name, geographic location, aircraft tail number, home-base airport, occupation, and products and services. The 2007 edition also includes a roster of NBAA's Board of Directors, Standing Committees and professional staff, as well as a new section that highlights some of NBAA's key Member benefits as a reminder of all the Association resources available.

NBAA Members should find the new Online Directory to be a helpful supplement to the information contained in the printed version. For the first time, users will be able to search Member data online by company, individual, aircraft, airport, and products and services. Searches can be further customized by region. The online edition is password-protected for use by Members only.

Members can update their company details in the Online Directory by contacting NBAA at (800) FYI-NBAA or membership@nbaa.org.

NBAA Members can access the new Online Directory immediately at www.nbaa.org/directory. The printed edition was mailed free to current NBAA Members in May, and Members may obtain additional printed copies for $100 each by contacting publications@nbaa.org. This NBAA product is not available to non-Members.
