General Air Mail Questions

The following are the most frequently asked questions about using Air Mail in general. For additional help, contact webmaster@nbaa.org.

What’s the difference between Air Mail Forums and Air Mail Listserv?

There are two ways to participate in Air Mail:

  • Air Mail Forums – Web-based forums available to Members only with the website password.
  • Air Mail Listserv – Listserv-based email discussion lists. Participants subscribe to send and receive posts by email.

Email messages sent to an Air Mail discussion list address are broadcast to everyone subscribed that list, and are included in Air Mail Forums.
Air Mail Forum posts are emailed to Air Mail Listserv subscribers for that topic.

Can I share files or attachments through Air Mail?

No, you can share files on Air Mail Forums or send email attachments through Air Mail Listserv. While email attachments are great for sharing files with colleagues, they can lead to headaches when dealing with hundreds of recipients. Some people cannot read email attachments due to technical problems; in addition, attachments will not be stored properly in the web-based Air Mail Forums.

Any email message with an attachment sent to an Air Mail Listserv address will be rejected automatically.

May I use Air Mail to market my products/services?

No, Air Mail should not be used for marketing messages. Please review the Air Mail Rules for more information.

May I post a job opening/résumé on Air Mail?

Yes, we have established the Contract Jobs Air Mail list specifically for that purpose.

Announcements of available short-term and fill-in contract positions, or your availability for these types of roles, may be posted only to the Contract Jobs Air Mail list. Resumes, job openings and contract employee announcements may not be posted on other Air Mail lists.

An addition, the Business Aviation Jobs resource is the primary venue for full-time business aviation opportunities and candidate resumes.

May I post charter availability announcements (i.e. one ways) to Air Mail?

Yes, you may post such messages only to the Charter Availability list at charter@airmail.nbaa.org.

It is against the Air Mail rules to send charter availability posts to the other Air Mail lists.

Does NBAA pre-screen Air Mail messages?

No. NBAA does not edit, filter or censor Air Mail messages before they are posted. Therefore, it is up to you to make sure that your message says exactly what you want it to before posting it. Please review the Air Mail Communications Guidelines web forum and listserv best practices.
