Business aviation was a driving force behind the creation of a new Colorado general aviation caucus dedicated to educating state lawmakers about the industry’s importance across the Centennial State. “It’s absolutely critical for the business aviation groups to be at the caucuses and be involved with them,” said Kelly Sloan, legislative affairs specialist for the Colorado Aviation Business Association. “If we’re not engaged, things are going to happen to our industry that we’re not going to know about until [it’s] too late.”
In today’s episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Alan Burnett, founding partner at CenterPoint Aviation Law PLLC and member of the Pacific Northwest Business Aviation Association and the NBAA Tax Committee
Throughout February, NBAA has marked Black History Month by recognizing the significant aviation contributions of African Americans and emphasizing the importance of ensuring our industry is open and welcoming to people from all backgrounds.
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.
