More On Minimum Standards In February

By Michael France, NATA Director of Regulatory Affairs

In a Policy Playbook blog post last year, I addressed the value of comprehensive, updated airport minimum standards to both on airport businesses and airport sponsors. The post, titled THAT’S NOT FAIR!!!—a little work now can help avoid problems later ,” examines how minimum standards work to facilitate a vibrant, fair and open relationship between aviation businesses and airport operators.

At next month’s NATA FBO Leadership Conference, I will moderate a panel consisting of FBO, airport management and FAA representatives who will discuss the value of minimum standards to your business. Attendees will gain a better understanding of how minimum standards are utilized by all involved parties, as well as learn a few tips for ensuring that airport minimum standards are designed and developed to provide the most benefit to all airport users.

The 2011 FBO Leadership Conference takes place February 7-8 in Savannah, Georgia. This conference was developed for leading executives and managers of fixed base operations, and features nationally recognized experts who will provide the latest intelligence, tactics and strategies to maximize NATA member FBOs’ business success.

“The 2011 FBO Leadership Conference offers preeminent opportunities for leaders to tap into the enormous wealth of industry knowledge. We are pleased to present political and industry forecasts from top leaders, a security update direct from the TSA, expert industry panels to discuss the latest developments in general aviation issues and NATA’s leading programs, various opportunities to network and much more.” – James K. Coyne, NATA President

NATA and the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) will once again coordinate the NATA FBO Leadership Conference with NBAA’s Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference, also being held in Savannah, Georgia, on February 9-11, 2011.
