The show also features more than 100 education sessions covering topics of interest to all attendees, from those considering the use of an airplane to support their business needs, to those who have long used an airplane to help their businesses succeed. Exhibiting original equipment manufacturers will also offer dozens of maintenance and operations sessions for attendees. Register for NBAA2013 today.

NBAA’s Convention to Feature First-Ever Indoor Aircraft Display

NBAA’s Convention to Feature First-Ever Indoor Aircraft Display
The expansive outdoor static display of aircraft is a hallmark of all NBAA conventions, but attendees at this year’s show will also have the opportunity to experience a new, indoor static display on the main exhibit floor inside the Las Vegas Convention Center. The display – the first of its kind at an NBAA convention – will feature 10 to 15 light business aircraft, allowing attendees to review and compare a selection of business aircraft without ever leaving the show's exhibit floor. As an added convenience, the indoor static display of aircraft will be located immediately adjacent to the shuttle bus pickup location for transport to the outdoor display at Henderson Executive Airport (HND).
