Podcast: 2023 Regional Issues Preview

Feb. 27, 2023

The start of a new year also means a new round of state legislative sessions across the country, and many of those assemblies are now debating legislation that could directly or indirectly affect business aviation. NBAA’s regional directors are active participants in those discussions that range from concerns over airport and airspace access to proposed bans on 100LL avgas. “Some of the big topics this year revolve around sustainability,” notes NBAA Western Regional Director Phil Derner. “[There’s] a lot of discussion of unleaded fuel and sustainable aviation fuel, both of which NBAA is very supportive of. Sustainability is one of our top priorities.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Brittany Davies, NBAA Northeast regional director
  • Phil Derner, NBAA Western regional director
  • Steve Hadley, senior director of NBAA Regional Programs and Southwest Central regional director
