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.
