NBAA is among several organizations working to ensure that business aviation is well represented at the 2019 International Civil Aviation Organization Triennial Assembly. For example, “With the renewed focus of supersonic transport and how to safely, efficiently and responsibly bring that technology back to the community, it appears that business aviation may take a leadership role with helping to establish updated standards that reflect current priorities on emissions, on noise and efficiency,” said Doug Carr, NBAA vice president, regulatory and international affairs.
This week, NBAA Flight Plan host Pete Combs speaks with:

Throughout February, NBAA has marked Black History Month by recognizing the significant aviation contributions of African Americans and emphasizing the importance of ensuring our industry is open and welcoming to people from all backgrounds.
The FAA has been working with NBAA and others to address privacy concerns with the Privacy ICAO Address program (PIA), which recently was expanded beyond the contiguous U.S. to include overwater routes.
Flight data monitoring and data sharing are important tools to help identify potential safety risks before they become serious issues. That said, many operators are uncertain about how they work, what equipment is needed and what this information can offer their operations. NBAA has developed a new, comprehensive resource to answer those and other questions.
