A lot of eyes are on the market for used business aircraft right now as the industry continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. While inventory shortages may temper activity somewhat in the months ahead, “all initial indications are pointing toward 2021 being a robust year for activity in aircraft sales transactions,” according to Par Avion Founder and President Janine Iannarelli.
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Dave Coleman, aircraft sales and acquisitions executive for Duncan Aviation
Janine Iannarelli, founder and president of Par Avion Limited
Jay Mesinger, president and CEO of Mesinger Jet Sales
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.
