Podcast: Have You Done Your PREFLIGHT Today?

March 20, 2023

NBAA’s PREFLIGHT flyer campaign aims to promote professionalism across our industry, with the nine letters in the acronym “PREFLIGHT” each representing an attitude or behavior vital to being a true business aviation professional. “The whole point of being prepared and professional is acknowledging the fact there are any number of things that can go wrong on any given flight,” notes NBAA Domestic Operations Committee Chair Eric Canup. “The more we are engaged and the more we are prepared, the more we can mitigate those risks.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
  • Eric Canup, chair of NBAA Domestic Operations Committee and head of flight operations at Live Oak Bank
  • David Keys, vice chair of NBAA Domestic Operations Committee, chief pilot at Peace River Citrus Products and president of the Central Florida Business Aviation Association
