NATA Releases FBO Managers Resource Kit

Alexandria, VA, April 20, 2012 – The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) recently released new editions of its Negotiating Aviation Agreements guidebook and Community Relations Toolkit, and in late 2011 released an update of its Refueling and Quality Control Procedures for Airport Service and Support Operations guidebook. Each publication not only contains essential guidance on important business issues, but also provides templates, samples and other practical resources to put to work in your operation. 


NATA is offering the three books separately or together as an FBO Managers Resource Kit. The FBO Managers Resource Kit offers the best discount price for these publications, but you may still purchase them individually. The FBO Managers Resource Kit price is $600 for members and $880 for non-members.


The Community Relations Toolkit is a handbook for expanding community outreach efforts to airport neighbors and key stakeholders. Community relations play a vital role in ensuring good relations with local neighbors, businesses and public officials. It is through an effective community relations plan that an aviation business owner or airport manager can detect, in the early stages, concerns or issues within the local public that need to be addressed.


The purpose of the Negotiating Aviation Agreements Guidebook is to serve as a resource for fixed base operators (FBOs) and specialized aviation service operations (SASOs) doing business at general aviation airports. It is not intended to provide legal or business advice, but instead, to identify and discuss certain legal, business, and insurance issues that arise in negotiating agreements to provide aeronautical services at airports.


The Refueling and Quality Control Procedures for Airport Service and Support Operations is a comprehensive review of the complex standards and requirements for the handling of aviation fuel. Each and every day, millions of gallons of aviation fuel are pumped into a wide range of general aviation aircraft. The risks of fuel spills, fire, fuel contamination, misfueling and personal injury are always present; however, actual accidents and injuries are relatively rare.
