21 Sessions Focus On The Light Business Airplane Sector
There will be plenty of information for the owners and operators
of Light Business Airplanes at this year's NBAA Annual Meeting and
Convention, set for October 20th-22nd in Orlando. The problem may
be getting to all the sessions that look interesting.
The sessions begin on Wednesday, kicking off with "Putting
Business Aviation to Work for Your Travel Needs - NBAA Program for
Those Considering Business Aviation as an Option" at 0800. The
session is open to companies that do not currently own or operate a
business airplane. It is designed to be a high-level, introductory,
no sales-pitch, experience-driven format with time for audience
interaction with the panel of experts. The program will review
General Aviation options that are available, and provide tools that
prospective aircraft owners can use when deciding upon the purchase
or lease of an airplane.
For those that already own or use an airplane for business, you
can learn about stepping up to a jet, or get legal risk management
and asset protection information for aviators at 0830. 1030
offers an opportunity to learn more about flying GPS and WAAS
approaches, or a session about medical certification issues.
Wednesday afternoon's offerings range from "Survival Tactics for
Single Pilot IFR" to sessions on FAR's as they relate to business
aviation, tax benefits, and NEXRAD airborne radar.

On Thursday, attendees can choose from sessions on record
keeping (because no job is finished until the paperwork's done),
flight and fuel planning, and safety management for small flight
Cessna will hold a mid-morning 'Single-Pilot Safety Standown',
which will draw upon the actual experiences of pilots, providing an
emphasis on peer-to-peer information sharing. Safety-themed
sessions will focus on emerging technologies in cockpit information
and decision-support systems to enhance operational safety, best
practices for on-the-ground operations, and planning for flights
outside the continental U.S. Pre-registration is required for the
Safety Standown, as space is limited.
Other morning sessions include Flying Green, and Choosing the
Best Airplane For Your Business Needs. In the afternoon, learn
about the latest in cockpit "Gizmos and Gadgets", or take in a
seminar on how to choose a maintenance company.
NBAA offers a full rundown of the sessions for LBA owners and
operators on the annual meeting website, along with all the other
activities planned for the show. ANN hopes to see you there.
