A crisis often strikes without warning, so it’s imperative that business aircraft operators have their response procedures, including a thorough and effective crisis communications plan, at the ready. “Communication transcends every single aspect of the emergency response plan,” says Don Chupp of Fireside Partners. “If you haven’t practiced it, then the entire response is going to look disjointed and, at its worst, probably disingenuous.”
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Don Chupp, President and CEO, Fireside Partners Inc.
Lisa Swartzwelder, Director, Shuttle Operations and Flight Administration, L Brands Service 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.
