Who Is in Charge of Business Aviation’s Future? You Are.

No one can convey the essential nature of business aviation to local communities and the national economy better than the business aviation community itself. In order to facilitate policies and perceptions that promote the growth of business aviation, our industry must be an aggressive advocate in Washington and with the media. If we don’t take charge of our own destiny, others will.

Join NBAA’s Leadership Council

The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Leadership Council is made up of individuals and businesses as diverse as the business aviation community itself. These companies all have one attribute in common – they have chosen to become Leadership Council investors with NBAA.

The NBAA Leadership Council significantly strengthens the Association, allowing NBAA to reinforce its mission as an organization committed to promoting an environment that fosters business aviation in the U.S. and around the world.

What NBAA Leaders Have Said:

“My company became one of the first investors in the Leadership Council to reaffirm the need for well-backed advocacy at both the federal and state level. Business aviation faces many adversaries, some well intentioned and some not. We are choosing to take charge of our future.”

Jeff Lee
Former NBAA Chairman

“Our Leadership Council investors play a critical role in the success of business aviation. Their backing reflects their dedication to our mission, investment in the success of our industry and commitment to being in charge of business aviation’s future. We are using this investment to take a forward looking, proactive role in issues that will impact our Members’ business climate and, in some cases, the very survival of our industry.”

Ed Bolen
NBAA President and CEO
