NBAA Wraps Up a Highly Successful 2012 Convention
The Association today wrapped up the third and final day of its 65th Annual Meeting & Convention (NBAA2012), which Association President and CEO Ed Bolen termed "a very good show." The event closed with 25,150 people in attendance, a number comparable to the final totals in 2010 and 2011. "Attendees and Exhibitors at this year's show have told us that it was a very strong event, despite its timing alongside Hurricane Sandy's landfall on the East Coast, and a temporary flight restriction for the Orlando area late on Sunday evening and Monday morning before the show," Bolen said. "We're delighted that, especially given those challenges, Convention participants reported strong traffic on the exhibit floor and at the aircraft static displays, along with a high level of enthusiasm among Attendees."

New Traffic Management Tool Could Provide Preferred Reroutes
In the not-too-distant future, aircraft operators facing an en route constraint will have the opportunity to identify a range of reroute options they prefer and, thanks to a new air traffic management tool called the Collaborative Trajectory Options Program (CTOP), may be able to minimize the impact of airspace constraints. CTOP is scheduled to roll out in autumn 2013. This week at the Convention, NBAA Air Traffic Services staffers Jim McClay and Ernie Stellings, along with two FAA representatives, briefed operators on how CTOP, an important piece of NextGen, will give them the opportunity to provide air traffic managers input on the potential reroutes they are assigned. Read more about the new air traffic management tool.
