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
The new year promises to be an interesting one for many reasons. What might the U.S. presidential election – and other factors – portend for the pre-owned business aircraft market? Three experts share their perspectives.
With the New Year quickly approaching, we look back on the most popular episodes of NBAA’s Flight Plan podcast over the past 12 months, which featured discussions about professionalism and safety, the relationship between sustainability and emerging technologies in business aviation and how NBAA works with the FAA to keep pilots flying safely through areas of convective weather.

Attracting the next generation of business aviation professionals is a top priority throughout the industry, and local and regional groups are often the first point-of-contact for students and young people seeking information about the industry and its potential opportunities.
