Ensuring Privacy Post ADS-B Implementation

Presented by: Heidi Williams, NBAA

Ensuring privacy is essential for many business aircraft owners as travel patterns may convey competitive intelligence. NBAA has been a strong advocate for privacy which should not be surrendered just by boarding an airplane. The FAA responded and developed a plan to allow a real-time flight-tracking opt-out for operators that have equipped their aircraft with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) equipment. Learn about the Privacy ICAO Address (PIA) and the Limiting Aircraft Data Displayed (LADD) programs, and how to take advantage of them, which were developed by FAA in part to address privacy and security concerns NBAA raised with the availability of ADS-B Out data.

1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.
A Quantitative Objective Framework for Fatigue Risk Management

Moderator: Dr. Daniel Mollicone, Pulsar Informatics Inc.

Fatigue is an operational hazard that has the potential to impact every part of a flight operation including maintenance, dispatch, flight attendants and pilots. The NTSB estimates that fatigue is a causal or contributing factor in 1 in 5 aviation accidents. Scientific studies have demonstrated that we tend to underestimate the degree of our own fatigue-related deficits. In order to monitor for and mitigate fatigue hazards, a systematic approach is needed based on a pre-defined, objective, quantitative framework. The presentation will present approaches to reliably manage fatigue risk. Case studies will be presented demonstrating fatigue risk management implemented in different operation types.

2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
eVTOL and Urban Air Mobility

Moderator: Mike Nichols, NBAA
Panelists: Scott Akina, Quantum XYZ; Dave Merrill, Elroy Air; Mark Moore, Uber Elevate

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) incorporates remarkable technological advantages in electric motors, rotors, batteries and flight automation in electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) vehicles. This technology will become reality within just a few years and will have profound implications for business aviation. Our panel of experts will discuss how UAM will come to be and what market opportunities exist.

3:00 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.
Creating a Sustainable Future

Presented by: Stewart D’Leon and Mike Nichols, NBAA

The business aviation community has long led the way in supporting the products, procedures and policies that have continually reduced the industry’s carbon footprint. This interactive workshop will engage attendees as we explore how business aviation can reduce emissions and double-down on sustainability, ranging from hangar improvements to Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
