Classic Aero-TV: Looking In The Mirror--Defining The Issues That Plague BizAv

We're In Tough Straits... But How Much Of That Is OUR Fault?

While much of the industry had resigned itself to suffering the unkind fate of bad press, negative attention from Washington, and a public image that was sliding from 'not so good' to 'pretty darn deplorable' this year's NBAA convention saw a whole new attitude taking shape.

It started Sunday morning, with the first of the pre-NBAA press conferences when Hawker Beech Boss Bill Boisture started off with a stirring and pointed rant at Washington… Complaining that not only was Washington off-base, but that he frankly didn't believe much of what they had to say anymore.
