Aviation West Charters and Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance are preparing for a trip to Las Vegas. Company representatives are heading to Glitter Gulch not for gaming and shows, but to check out the latest jets and meet industry leaders in the world of business aviation. In just over two weeks we’ll be attending the National Business Aviation Association’s 2013 Convention and Exhibition.

First, a little about the NBAA. Founded in 1947, its mission is “to foster an environment that allows business aviation to thrive in the United States and around the world. Based in Washington, D.C.,  the NBAA represents more than 9,000 companies and provides more than 100 products and services to the business aviation community.”

NBAA2013 is the nation’s sixth largest trade show and will offer Aviation West Charters dba. Angel MedFlight a great opportunity to meet the key operators in the industry and develop new business relationships. With Learjets and a Citation X already in our jet fleet, Aviation West Charters will be looking for the next greatest aircraft out there. We’ll be able to get up close to the most cutting-edge business jets at the convention’s Static Display at Henderson Executive Airport.

The convention will officially open Oct. 22 with the Opening General Session featuring NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen along with FAA Administrator Michael Huerta and the Administrator of the U.S. Transportation Security Administration, John Pistole. Over the course of three days the convention will feature speakers from all segments of the business aviation world and seminars on a broad range of topics.  And what would Vegas be without star power? Actor Harrison Ford, an accomplished pilot will receive the NBAA’s Al Ueltschi Award for Humanitarian Leadership at this year’s convention. Ford is an outspoken advocate for general aviation and has flown numerous missions supporting humanitarian and philanthropic causes.

Representatives from Bombardier Business Aircraft, Cessna, Gulfstream, Beechcraft and Piaggio  (to name a few) will speak at NBAA2013. We’ll also hear the latest trends in the air charter industry from the Air Charter Association of North America. The opportunities to rekindle old friendships and forge new relationships are boundless. At last count there were over 1,000 exhibitors scheduled including over 50 aircraft manufacturers at the Static Aircraft Display.

What’s the latest in the world of business aviation? We along with 25,000 other business aviation professionals will find out later this month at NBAA2013.

While Aviation West Charters dba. Angel MedFlight strives to maintain a standard of excellence in both the charter aircraft and air ambulance industries, we keep a close eye on the future. We’re surveying what technology is on the horizon and what relationships we can develop that will only make us better.
