In recognition of their valuable contributions to NBAA’s Schedulers and Dispatchers scholarship program, the organization has honored two long time supporting companies.
NBAA’s 25th Annual Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference officially kicked off yesterday with the announcement that this year’s show had set a new attendance record of more than 2,600.
Lee Medlin, a founding member and past chairman of the NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers (S&D) Advisory Council, was presented today with the association’s Schedulers & Dispatchers Outstanding Achievement & Leadership Award.
A record-high 2,600 people are expected to attend the 2014 NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference, which opened this morning at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans and runs through Friday.
Two executives from TLC Aviation at St. Maarten (Netherlands Antilles) International Airport that are experts in private/executive aviation in the Caribbean will be at the NBAA Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference this week in New Orleans.
As the 25th annual NBAA’s Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference kicks off in New Orleans on Tuesday, organizers anticipate setting a new record for exhibitors at approximately 500. This would eclipse the 425 airports, FBOs, fuel suppliers and other companies that displayed their services at last year’s event, which was held in San Antonio.
The Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS), launched in 1976 by NASA and the FAA, was developed to identify deficiencies and discrepancies in the National Airspace System as well as provide planning data for future system improvements. To date, the ASRS process has produced nearly one million safety reports.
Voluntary safety programs are based on trust. Can you trust the FAA? The short answer, when it comes to voluntarily reporting violations or voluntarily cooperating with an FAA investigation, is no. You absolutely cannot trust the FAA to look out for your interests, especially the interests of maintaining your certificate or livelihood.
At NBAA’s annual Schedulers & Dispatchers conference, held this year in January in San Antonio, more than 2,400 registered attendees from 30 countries received a hearty Texas welcome to the Alamo City.
The 2013 NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference held last week in San Antonio, Texas, attracted more than 2,400 attendees, giving it the fourth-highest attendance count in the show’s history. This year’s event, which serves as a showcase for the FBO industry and other flight service providers, had a conference-record 425 exhibitors and 32 breakout sessions, which served to educate attendees on many aspects of flight department operations. Next year, for its 25th anniversary edition, the Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference will mark its first return to New Orleans in 20 years.
