As nearly 3,000 attendees gather in San Antonio, TX this week for the 30th annual SDC, many may marvel at how the event has evolved over the years. “There were maybe 100 attendees at the first couple of events, with just a handful of exhibitors,” said Julie Brooks, business manager at Professional Flight Management. “It was a relatively informal gathering. There couldn’t have been more than 20 exhibitors.” Watch a special 30 years of SDC video and read more about the conference’s milestone.

SDC2019: Paying It Forward to the Future Business Aviation Workforce

As the industry grapples with the challenge of developing tomorrow’s workforce, NBAA’s Schedulers & Dispatchers Advisory Council is helping to shape future business aviation professionals. For the second consecutive year, the group organized a Pay-It-Forward educational initiative prior to the opening of the SDC2019. Working with the local school district, they organized a half-day event to give 22 potential aviators a chance to learn about all the industry has to offer. “It’s our way to give back,” said council member Amber Finchum. “There are so many different jobs and careers that exist within our industry that kids don’t even know about.” Learn more about the future of business aviation.
