Essential to Protecting the Future of Business Aviation

Members of the National Business Aviation Association understand how aviation plays a crucial role in helping American companies optimize their efficiency, competitiveness and success. From its founding in 1947, NBAA has been squarely focused on representing you, and fostering a policy agenda that promotes business aviation in the U.S. and around the world. As part of that mission, NBAA has helped shape public policy in every Washington corridor, while also enhancing safety and security standards, and supporting members’ everyday needs.

That said, NBAA can’t fully carry out its mission to represent the industry’s importance in the halls among civic leaders and other decision-makers without a key voice: yours. So how can you help? Join the Leadership Council members who are focused on ensuring that business aviation is as strong five, 10 and 25 years from now as it is today.

Leadership Council support helps ensure NBAA can continue trumpeting the value of business aviation with initiatives like the No Plane No Gain advocacy campaign, which drives perceptions about business aviation with policymakers and opinion leaders. Leadership Council backing strengthens NBAA’s efforts to address workforce challenges. Equally important, Leadership Council support has been critical in fighting attempts to limit your access to airports and airspace, including attempts to privatize air traffic control.

No one can convey the essential nature of business aviation to local communities and the national economy more effectively than the business aviation community itself. In order to advance policies and perceptions that promote the growth of business aviation, our industry must be an aggressive advocate in Washington and with the media. If we don’t take charge of our own destiny, others will. Learn more below.
