Washington, DC, Aug. 23, 2021 – For the first time, NBAA’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE), which takes place Oct. 12-14 in Las Vegas, NV, will feature an Owner/Single-Pilot Operator Pavilion to bring together a key part of the business aviation community in new ways.

“Owner-pilots are not just a key part ​of the business aviation community: they’re innovators, thought leaders and groundbreaking entrepreneurs,” said Andrew Broom, NBAA senior vice president for strategy, marketing and innovation. “This pavilion is more than just a place to gather – it’s a new platform for fostering deeply shared peer connections, to everyone’s benefit. We’re pleased to partner with the owner-pilot groups on this exciting new initiative.”

Located within the NBAA-BACE outdoor aircraft display at Henderson Executive Airport (HND), the air-conditioned pavilion will feature sessions tailored to single-pilot turboprop and jet operators, and a host of opportunities for networking.

The presentations, sponsored by some of business aviation’s most dynamic companies and thought leaders, will be hosted at the pavilion Oct. 12-13 as a companion to NBAA’s Single-Pilot Safety Standdown, which will be held on Oct. 11, and the association’s National Safety Forum on Oct. 14.

Textron Aviation will kick off the sponsored presentations on Oct. 12, and a full schedule will be announced closer to the start of NBAA-BACE.
