As business aviation flight departments continue to adapt to the COVID-19 environment, many have reduced staffing levels to minimize the risk of exposing other employees and spreading the virus. Operators must also determine how to best handle the resulting safety and security implications of having fewer employees on a given shift, especially overnight.
In this episode of NBAA’s Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Don Chupp, president and CEO of Fireside Partners
Greg Hamelink, chair of the NBAA Maintenance Committee and senior manager of flight operations and maintenance at Stryker Corp.
NBAA reminds all business aircraft operators traveling internationally that their passengers must be tested for COVID-19 prior to returning to the U.S., in line with a January 2021 order from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
As demand soars for business aviation services, the industry must ensure a smooth and safe transition back to a new normal, said a panel of industry experts in the latest NBAA News Hour Thought Leadership webinar We’re Off to the Races – An Industry Roaring Back, sponsored by Mesinger Jet Sales.
With many parts of the world finally emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, flight departments have several considerations for maintaining high standards of safety, service and efficiency as the industry returns to operations.
