Location: Orange County Convention Center, Room S320F

Moderated by: Amber Finchum, State Farm

Presented by: Ron Jackson, The Jackson Group and John Enticknap, Aviation Business Strategies Group

Because of a strong push towards alternate fuel purchasing strategies from flight departments, charter ops, and fractional ops, FBOs are forced to change the way they deliver and charge for services. At one end, FBOs are faced with higher cost of fuel which drives up the base price and produces higher operating costs, taxes and fees. At the other end is the more savvy aircraft operator striving to drive down their aircraft operating costs and purchasing fuel as competitively as possible. Caught in the middle is the FBO margin. How can FBOs and aircraft operators find mutual ground? This session will detail why a new FBO business model is in the wind and how it will benefit aircraft operators and FBOs alike.

An "airworthy aircraft" on the ramp may not be good enough for your passengers. Today’s most accurate operational term is best described as "fit for purpose." With the demand for constant communication in our personal and business lives, cabin communications is becoming as important as the aircraft’s engine to the end user of the aircraft. Cabin communication technologies are consistently changing. The Next Tech for the Next Gen will need to be well-versed in more areas of concentration and IT education won't just be a nicety. Knowledge of network interfaces, fault isolation, and correction of sophisticated LAN systems within the environment will be required. Discussion and takeaways will ensure the department managers, flight crews, flight attendants, and future technicians build on the skill set necessary to maintain constantly changing technology.

Do you have the necessary resources to address the immediate and long term needs of crew and passenger families? Can you protect your company's reputation during the most difficult of times?

Education Track: Aviation Management and Aircraft Ownership

Moderated by: Frank Polk, McAfee & Taft

Presented by: Scott McCreary, McAfee & Taft; Jon Croasmun, Wells Fargo Bank Northwest, NA; and Michael Hoggan , Bank of Utah

After years of debate and study the FAA issued a formal interpretation of FAA regulations pertaining to the registration of aircraft in the name of a Trustee pursuant to a trust agreement with a non-citizen as Trustor and beneficiary, known as NCTs. The published interpretation includes a number of gray areas and is open to additional interpretation by the FAA on a variety of issues. As a result, the FAA's position on the use of NCTs continues to evolve. Perhaps more importantly the FAA's position on NCTs has been criticized by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the DOT which may cause further evaluation of and changes to the use of NCTs for aircraft registration. . Learn where NCTs currently stand, the rules and procedures in place, and what may be changing in the future.

Time Management for Sales & Marketing Teams


Location: Orange County Convention Center, Room S320H

Education Track: Career and Leadership Development

Presented by: Paula Williams, ABCI, LLC and John Williams, ABCI, LLC

Aviation professionals who are responsible for sales results often find themselves with more to do than time to do it! There are a myriad of tasks that you know would improve your company’s sales and marketing performance. Unfortunately, small teams or even single individuals find themselves responsible for work that was performed by a team of six or eight people prior to 2009. When sales and marketing tasks are neglected, sales and revenues decline, leading to smaller budgets and potentially further reductions in staff. Turning this vicious cycle around and improving sales and marketing productivity is key to a company’s success, or even survival. This session will offer proven solutions that have worked for us and for our clients.
9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Would You Fly With This Pilot?

Education Track: Safety and Risk Management

Presented by: Quay Snyder, MD, MSPH, Aviation Medicine Advisory Service; Paulo Alves, MD, MedAire; Pete Agur , The VanAllen Group ; and Francois Lassale, Vortex

This Session is eligible for CAM application and recertification credit.

Assessing Fitness To Fly (FTF) is critical for each crewmember before every flight to maximize safe operations. The human component of aviation is the most prone to compromise or failure due to many subtle causes. This panel discusses key areas of potential compromise to assess including physical, psychological and cognitive factors. International operations increase risks of fatigue and travel illnesses. Psychological factors including depression and alcohol/substance use impair cognitive function. Physical factors such as sleep apnea, mild dementia and chronic diseases reduce pilot skills. This panel will discuss the multi-factorial FTF assessment on individual and organizational levels. Strategies for a systemic approach to prevention, identification and risk mitigation of both sudden and subtle incapacitation for the flight department are discussed.

Location: Orange County Convention Center, Room S320AB

Education Track: Career and Leadership Development

Presented by: Jim Lara, Gray Stone Advisors and Steve Brechter, Gray Stone Advisors

This Session is eligible for CAM application and recertification credit.

Have you ever wondered why certain aspects of your role as a leader are more difficult to perform than others? The answer likely lies within you. Self-awareness and Transformational Leadership go hand-in-hand, but most approaches to leadership development stop short of the most important component, a clear understanding of 'self.' Like electrons orbiting an atom, leadership development today typically addresses the systems that surround the leader, but rarely touches upon the ‘nucleus’ of who we really are. The primary measure of success as a Transformational Leader is your 'fit' in the role. In this seminar, we will explore the role that the ‘self’ plays in becoming a Transformational Leader and how you can succeed by understanding yourself and the various roles a leader must play.
