In our last episode, NBAA held a journalists’ roundtable examining our industry’s COVID-19 moment, how it compares to past downturns and what the future – hopefully, a brighter one – might look like. Now, three of business aviation’s most respected analysts offer their thoughts about our industry’s rebound from this pandemic. “Those that own airplanes already aren’t running for the exits and putting ‘For Sale’ signs on their aircraft,” notes Brian Foley, founder and president of Brian Foley Associates. “They really don’t want to get rid of them.”

  • Richard Koe, managing director for charter intelligence firm WingX
  • Brian Foley, founder and president of Brian Foley Associates
  • Rolland Vincent, founder of JetNet iQ
