The Future of Business Aviation Is Here

From pilots to technicians, CEOs to marketing specialists, young people across the world are shaping our industry in profound ways. NBAA’s Young Professionals in Business Aviation (YoPro) program is shining a light on these extraordinary individuals.

Earlier this year, hundreds of nominations were submitted across eight career categories. NBAA’s YoPro Council reviewed these outstanding candidates and identified 40 men and women who represent the best of our industry. This is NBAA’s 2018 Business Aviation Top 40 Under 40, and these are their stories.
