NBAA 2011 was an interesting year for the world's largest gathering of all things BizAv... it also signaled a far more aggressive shift in what and how the BizAv world decided to explain itself.
Starting with HBC's Bill Boisture, on the day before the official opening of the event, the "Plane-Speaking" commended and never stopped as one flyer after another decried the nonsense the aviation world had been forced to deal with... at the hands of a public, media and government that fails to understand or appreciate the immense contributions this industry makes, day after day, flight after flight.
West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin (D) took the stage at the 2011 NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention, stating in no uncertain terms that, "Every state benefits from general aviation." Manchin addressed several hundred attendees at the event's Opening General Session and noted that Business aviation, "... provides 1.2 million manufacturing and service jobs."
U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) was sworn into the United States Senate on November 15, 2010 to fill the seat left vacant by the late Senator Robert C. Byrd adfter poreviously serving as WV's Governor. Manchin is an unusual poltician... He began his tenure as West Virginia’s 34th governor in January 2005, approving millions of dollars in tax relief for West Virginia’s citizens and businesses, fixing the state’s workers’ compensation system, and dramatically decreased the state’s debt. During his term as Governor, he reportedly worked closely with Republicans and Democrats to cut taxes, reduce regulations, attract record investments, create new jobs and expand vital social services for seniors and the poor, all while leaving the state with budget surpluses every year.
