With the government shutdown officially over, the gathering of associations at the NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention will be a format to emphasize the importance of aviation.
As Ed Bolen said today, “We welcome this agreement for ending the shutdown, because it brings a resolution to an untenable situation. The agreement to end the shutdown runs until the end of 2013, and it is part of a larger, ongoing fiscal-policy debate in Washington. That means we may be looking at the same circumstances that led to this shutdown in the not-too-distant future. As always, we will need to remain vigilant, and our industry will need to be ready to mobilize, just as the business aviation community did when the devastating impacts of this shutdown became clear.”
Besides the stories of the value of business aviation, numerous companies, exhibitors, regulators, and industry leaders will also discuss new technology and advances in the industry. Aircraft Maintenance Technology along with our other Cygnus Aviation organizations, Airport Business, Ground Support Worldwide, AMTSociety, and the Cygnus Aviation Expo will be at booth C11036. Stop by and visit with the staff and see what new things Cygnus Aviation has to offer.
I’ll see you there, Ron.
