Podcast: Making a Post-Pandemic Professional Development Plan

July 12, 2021

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
