AVS-SYS has joined the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), the leading organisation for companies that rely on general aviation aircraft to help their business.
“We believe that membership of the NBAA will be a massive benefit to AVS- SYS,” said Paul Heaton, Managing Director of AVS-SYS. “It gives us fantastic insight into the needs and desire of the business aviation community - not only the owners and operators but also the manufacturers and service companies.”
The NBAA represents and provides assistance to 10,000 Member Companies; it collects, interprets and disseminates operational and managerial data related to the safe, efficient and cost-effective use of business aircraft. The Association is the focal point for identifying and understanding advances in technology and procedures important to the business aviation community.
AVS-SYS explains that the NBAA is focused on issues such as aviation safety, operational efficiency, fair and equal access, FAA reform, noise and compatible land use, peak hour landing fees, reliever airports, air support, air traffic control modernisation, product liability reform, research and development, business aviation advocacy and various tax issues.
