Podcast: Sustainability and Emerging Technologies

Jan. 9, 2023

The rapid development of advanced air mobility and other emerging technologies in business aviation is also driving greater industry focus on sustainability, as demonstrated by the level of interaction and cooperation between NBAA’s Emerging Technologies Committee and the Sustainability Subcommittee of the NBAA Maintenance Committee. “Whether you are a Part 91 or Part 135 operator, your customers — whether they are the C-suite or commercial passengers — are increasingly looking for operations that have foundations in sound ESG [environmental, social and governance] practices,” notes Emerging Technologies Committee Member Chris Proudlove.

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
  • Scott Cutshall, member, NBAA Sustainability Subcommittee and senior vice president of development and sustainability at Clay Lacy Aviation
  • Brock Jordan, co-chair, NBAA Sustainability Subcommittee and chief pilot for Netflix
  • Paul McDuffee, vice chair, NBAA Emerging Technologies Committee and senior principal advisor at Supernal
  • Chris Proudlove, member, NBAA Emerging Technologies Committee and senior vice president for Global Aerospace
