Air Mail Basics

Bookmark and Share

NBAA Air Mail is the Association's social network for collaboration and discussion on topics of interest to business aircraft operators. Through Air Mail, NBAA Members can communicate their concerns, questions, gripes and insights with their fellow Members on nearly any topic relevant to the group.

Before participating in Air Mail, Members should review the Air Mail rules.

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.

Below are the Air Mail lists available. Lists fall within five categories:

Additional NBAA broadcast lists are available for Association newsletters, press releases and alerts.
