Canada’s borders only recently reopened to U.S. travelers vaccinated against COVID-19, but there already have been some procedural changes that affect business aircraft operators. “The things that will get you are the things that you’re not prepared for,” said Alligator Inc. President Ron Renz, who recently completed a flight to Winnipeg. “The rules change. You’d better check daily if you’re going to go [to Canada].”
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Scott Harrold, president, SkyAviation International and board member and treasurer, Canadian Business Aviation Association
Luis Nambo, master global regulatory specialist, Universal Weather & Aviation
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.
