Alexandria, VA – September 5, 2012 —The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) is pleased to announce that starting January 1, 2013, the association will offer its members a new, cutting edge benefit, the NATA Workers’ Compensation Insurance Program.

The new NATA Workers’ Compensation Insurance Program was designed to benefit members’ businesses and help advance our industry’s safety goals embodied in NATA’s Safety 1st program.

This exciting new program will offer Beacon’s most competitive prices for NATA members. In addition, NATA’s members participating in NATA’s Safety 1st programs will be given preferential pricing wherever it is permitted by state rules.

  • on-line training,
  • the NATA Safety 1st Management System for Ground Operations,
  • the NATA Safety 1st Management System for Air Operators, and
  • the NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit Standard.
