Emerging Technologies Mean New Opportunities for NBAA Members

NBAA has long focused on forward-looking technology that could have ample implication for its members and the business aviation community. To enhance these efforts, NBAA recently created an Emerging Technologies Committee to lead the way in the development and use of new technologies in business aviation. “We want to be able to embrace all of this new space and tap into the opportunities that are available for our members,” said Heidi Williams, NBAA, director, air traffic services and infrastructure. “We’ve got to get to the point where we can integrate these activities. That’s ultimately the goal so that we can share what is really a finite resource.”

This week, NBAA Flight Plan host Pete Combs speaks with:

  • Brad Hayden, Robotic Skies president and CEO, NBAA Emerging Technologies Committee chair
  • Paul McDuffee, Boeing, NBAA Emerging Technologies Committee vice chair
  • Heidi Williams, NBAA director, air traffic services and infrastructure, NBAA Emerging Technologies Committee staff liaison
