Leadership Conference, taking place January 25-26, 2010, with

leading annual event for providing timely and valuable information

responsible for coordinating the use of business aircraft. The
conference includes hundreds of exhibits from aviation products and

opportunity to provide increased value for one of our core
membership constituencies, and to enhance the educational offerings
offered by NBAA with business and industry briefings geared to FBO
leaders," said NATA President James K. Coyne.

Coyne concluded, "NATA members know that the association has

so to fulfill our mission to help ensure the long-term economic
success of our members."
