NBAA has announced its 2021 Business Aviation Top 40 Under 40, a select group of young professionals recognized by their peers for their contributions to our industry. In this episode, three of these dynamic individuals share their personal stories. “To be a 40 Under 40 means that somebody has looked at our passion, our drive [and] our achievements,” said Timothy Wade, director of health and safety at Constant Aviation and one of this year’s honorees, who added the award serves “to motivate us to continue the elevation of the industry.”
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with Top 40 Under 40 recipients:
Danielle Booth, sales director, AVEX Aviation
Timothy Wade, director, health and safety, Constant Aviation
Kellie Young, international captain, The Coca-Cola Company
The FAA has been working with NBAA and others to address privacy concerns with the Privacy ICAO Address program (PIA), which recently was expanded beyond the contiguous U.S. to include overwater routes.
Flight data monitoring and data sharing are important tools to help identify potential safety risks before they become serious issues. That said, many operators are uncertain about how they work, what equipment is needed and what this information can offer their operations. NBAA has developed a new, comprehensive resource to answer those and other questions.
In this special edition of NBAA Flight Plan, podcast host Rob Finfrock gets a few moments in between conference sessions with NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen to discuss the latest efforts by the association to highlight business aviation's societal benefits.
NBAA, with input from its Emerging Technologies Committee, Access Committee and Advanced Air Mobility Roundtable, recently joined with other industry partners to declare there are good reasons for the FAA not to use the term advanced air mobility in the agency's proposed revised definition of aeronautical activity.
