Owners, Single-Pilots to Have Dedicated Pavilion at NBAA-BACE

For the first time, NBAA’s Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (NBAA-BACE), which will take place in Las Vegas, NV, Oct. 12-14, will have a dedicated Owner/Single-Pilot Pavilion to champion this important segment of business aviation.

Located within the outdoor aircraft display at Henderson Executive Airport, the air-conditioned pavilion expresses the vibrancy of this community by showcasing owner and pilot associations and informing visitors of technological and operational advances tailored for single pilots.

The pavilion expresses the vibrancy of this community by showcasing owner and pilot associations.

Presentations, sponsored by some of business aviation’s most dynamic companies and thought leaders, will be hosted at the Owner/Single-Pilot Pavilion on Oct. 12-13 as a companion to NBAA’s Single-Pilot Safety Standdown, which will be held on Oct. 11, and the association’s National Safety Forum on Oct. 14.

“Owners and single pilots are a meaningful and relevant part of the business aviation sector. By bringing this community together at NBAA-BACE in a dedicated pavilion, we can showcase these growing groups and provide useful information regarding their operations,” said Andrew Broom, NBAA senior vice president of strategy, marketing and innovation.
