From record-setting pilots to those eyeing the future of aviation, the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) Day 2 Keynote inspired attendees with a forward-looking panel of speakers. “What is making NBAA-BACE 2019 so special is that we are able to see the future all around us – in products, in services and in a new generation of leaders,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. Attendees heard from record-setting pilot Capt. Barrington Irving; a discussion between Maj. Gen. Jeannie M. Leavitt, the first female combat pilot in the U.S. Air Force (USAF), and retired USAF Gen. Lloyd “Fig” Newton, the first African American to fly for the Thunderbirds and NBAA’s current chair; and aviation visionaries Eric Allison, of Uber Elevate, and Jetman Yves Rossy.

NBAA today unveiled a new report detailing the case for urban air mobility (UAM) and its benefits for business aviation. The report, titled “Business Aviation Embraces Electric Flight, How Urban Air Mobility Creates Enterprise Value,” was a joint undertaking of NBAA and NEXA Advisors, LLC, and is a component of a larger study that analyzed 74 cities around the world, forecasting the financial and economic business case for UAM. To determine the ability of metro areas to capitalize on its potential, the study examined each city’s needs with regards to infrastructure, regulation, congestion, current transportation networks and other factors. Learn more about the report.
Diversity and inclusion aren’t just buzzwords – they’re tangible ways to expand the business aviation workforce and increase team productivity. These are some of the thought-provoking takeaways from NBAA-BACE, which elevated the topic through education sessions and spotlights on diverse industry leaders. “Not only is it the right thing to do, but we also have a business case,” said Kimberly Perkins, a Gulfstream 650 captain.
