Part 135 and 91K operators may be eligible for a temporary exemption from certain requirements of the FAA’s Pilot Records Database program, after NBAA raised concerns with the agency that the database’s electronic transmission function isn’t expected to be fully operational until later this year. “This exemption is limited to members of NBAA,” notes Jason Maddux, vice chair of NBAA’s Regulatory Issues Advisory Group. “Members that want to take advantage of the exemption must file a letter of intent in the docket (FAA-2022-0795).”
In this special edition of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Brian Koester, CAM, NBAA director, flight operations and regulations
Jason Maddux, principal, Garofalo Goerlich Hainbach PC and vice chair, NBAA Regulatory Issues Advisory Group (RIAG)
Since 1998, NBAA’s regional representatives have provided a vital link between the association and local and regional business aviation stakeholders on matters affecting the industry. Recently, NBAA rebranded their role as regional directors to better reflect how their jobs have evolved.
Changing weather patterns are affecting aviation, and among the greatest resulting risks to air safety is clear air turbulence (CAT). A study by scientist Dr. Paul Williams has led him to predict that severe CAT will increase in the future.
The outlook for business aviation hiring remains strong, despite a number of challenges weighing on the global economy. However, job seekers must carefully consider multiple factors when making their employment decision.
Just as NBAA works to promote business aviation at the national level, regional groups play a vital advocacy role in their state, city or area. Today, four business aviation professionals share their experiences in launching one of the country’s newest regional groups.
