NBAA today wrapped up an inspiring 2019 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE), reflecting a changing industry, and driving it to embrace the future on all fronts. The show opened with NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen declaring that this year’s NBAA-BACE would be “the most exciting convention NBAA has ever hosted.” At the conclusion of the show that outcome was indisputable. Energy was high from the convention’s start – when basketball legend and entrepreneur Earvin “Magic” Johnson jumped off the opening keynote stage to tell the crowd he could never accomplish all that he has off the court without a business airplane – to the closing day, when every refueling turbine aircraft departed Henderson Executive Airport powered by sustainable aviation fuel.
