NBAA PDP Course Schedule

NBAA’s Professional Development Program (PDP) was developed to prepare business aviation professionals for management roles within business aviation flight departments. The program encourages participation in coursework, recognizes outstanding participants and rewards those seeking careers in business aviation. Anyone who occupies or aspires to a management position in a company involved with business aviation is eligible to participate.

PDP courses teach the skills needed to be an effective manager, which are the same regardless of a person's specialty background. All members of the flight department are good candidates for management training, whether supervisory pilots, maintenance personnel, line service personnel, schedulers, dispatchers or flight attendants.

Established training organizations and educational institutions, known as approved PDP providers, offer courses year-round through a variety of convenient and flexible delivery methods, including on-site seminars, Internet courses and video instruction. NBAA recognizes educational providers by offering courses that meet defined PDP objectives, and individuals receive Association recognition for successfully completing PDP-approved courses.

The offerings listed below represent just a few of the opportunities NBAA makes available for professional development. For more information about the program and upcoming PDP courses, visit NBAA's PDP Course Directory page.
