MEDIA ADVISORY: NBAA Set to Host Industry Leaders at Packed White Plains Regional Forum

Contact: Dan Hubbard, 202-431-5970,

Washington, DC, June 8, 2023 – The National Business Aviation Association’s (NBAA’s) White Plains Regional Forum will feature more than two dozen of the newest aircraft available on the market, more than 170 exhibitors and a packed agenda covering the future of the industry when it opens next week.

The event will convene current and prospective business aircraft owners, operators, manufacturers, customers and other essential industry personnel at Westchester County Airport (HPN) in New York on June 14.

The program will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a keynote address by NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen, who will discuss the key legislative, regulatory and operational issues facing business aviation today.

The aircraft display and exhibit hangar, both sold out, will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition to covering sustainability, aircraft operators at the forum will be able to purchase sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) using a book-and-claim (SAFC) transaction by World Fuel Services. Aircraft operators will purchase contract fuel at Million Air in HPN and convert the associated purchase to book and claim through World Fuel Services. This will enable aircraft operators to reduce the carbon footprint of their flight and incentivize production of SAF, even though it is not physically available at the airport.

With SAFC, the emissions reduction from SAF is separated into a separate transaction from the physical fuel. The physical fuel is then sold as conventional Jet-A at the airport closest to production. The buyer, or operator, receives the credit for the emissions reduction of the renewable fuel. The demand for SAF demonstrated with book and claim helps encourage increased production, supply and availability of the fuel.
