When the pandemic began to disrupt business aircraft operations in early 2020, many industry professionals used the downtime to pursue educational opportunities and professional development. It’s important to continue seeking knowledge and developing new skills, even as the industry emerges from COVID-19. “We had some downtime,” said Christa Hinckley, counsel for aviation and other forms of transportation at Fox Rothschild. “Hopefully, people used it to not only bake bread, but to also learn new skills in their chosen profession, or maybe even look into a different profession. I just think that should continue.”
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Lisa Archambeau, CAM, vice president, facilitator and strategist for ServiceElements International
Kris Cannon, business aircraft pilot and CEO of Aviation Secure
Christa Hinckley, transportation counsel at Fox Rothschild
David Norton, attorney and partner at Shackelford, Bowen, McKinley and Norton
A recent NBAA News Hour webinar answered some common questions regarding insurability of business aircraft held under an LLC. In fact, there were so many questions that they couldn't all be addressed during that webinar, so we've brought back three of the presenters to answer them.
Ensuring that young girls recognize the opportunities available to them in aviation is key to diversifying the industry in years to come, so NBAA staff and member companies this year took part in Girls in Aviation Day events around the country.
Unstabilized approaches, get-there-itis, flight-plan continuation bias and not fully understanding aircraft runway performance are reasons why runway excursions continue to be one of the most common safety challenges facing Part 91 operators. Training on how to effectively deal with such events can help reduce the threat, but having a backup plan may be most important.
