What Do Business Aircraft Operators Need to Know About Coronavirus?

Feb. 17, 2020

The Wuhan Coronavirus has impacted tens of thousands of people, and led to hundreds of deaths – most of those in China, but in other areas of the world too, including the U.S. The outbreak led NBAA and its organizing partner for the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) to cancel this year’s event to protect the health and safety of exhibitors and attendees. Medical experts say the risk of becoming infected is low if you have not traveled to that part of the world or come in contact with someone who has. Worth noting, in the U.S. this season there have so far been 19 million cases of influenza and 10,000 deaths from the flu, said Dr. Robert Haddon from the Mayo Clinic.

In this episode of NBAA Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Dr. Robert Haddon, specialist in aerospace medicine at Mayo Clinic
  • Dr. David Farnie, medical director for the Global Response Center at MedAire Worldwide
  • Mike Ott, communications and events team leader for the NBAA Safety Committee, captain for Phoenix Air Group
