During a keynote at the recent NBAA Leadership Conference, geoscientist, commercial astronaut and artist Dr. Sian Proctor explained to Ryan Hawk, host of “The Learning Leader” podcast, that anyone can take their life in new, exciting directions by simply capitalizing on opportunities for exploration and growth. “When you are surrounded by people who just bring out positive energy — they are inspiring, they’re hopeful, they’re imaginative, they’re creative — it changes you to want to be the same,” said Proctor.

With the New Year quickly approaching, we look back on the most popular episodes of NBAA’s Flight Plan podcast over the past 12 months, which featured discussions about professionalism and safety, the relationship between sustainability and emerging technologies in business aviation and how NBAA works with the FAA to keep pilots flying safely through areas of convective weather.

Attracting the next generation of business aviation professionals is a top priority throughout the industry, and local and regional groups are often the first point-of-contact for students and young people seeking information about the industry and its potential opportunities.
The end of the year is often a stressful time for business aircraft operators that are grappling with tax issues, particularly if they've purchased an airplane hoping to take advantage of higher bonus depreciation rates. Aviation managers shouldn’t wait until the final weeks of the year to develop their tax strategy.
