Building A Passion For Aviation In The Next Generation

Building a Passion for Aviation in the Next Generation

Aviation is an essential industry to support and sustain economies and communities, and one whose influence is steadily growing. This is creating more demand for talent in all areas of the industry. Often, people think aviation jobs mean pilot jobs, but an entire range of experts including technicians, dispatchers, mechanics, IT and software developers, planners are needed for robust operations.

NBAA Advocates for Advanced Air Mobility at the U.S. Senate

The findings of a recent Deloitte study showed that advanced air mobility (AAM) has the potential to contribute significantly to the U.S. economy by generating up to $115 billion annually by 2035 and creating more than 280,000 high-paying jobs. This represents an amazing opportunity for lawmakers and innovators to ignite economic growth while providing before unforeseen services in urban and emergency mobility. In light of this, the NBAA has been doing a magnificent job advocating leaders for proper investment in AAM.  
Private Jets Contributing To A Sustainable Future For All

Private Jets Contributing to a Sustainable Future for All

Recently, some political interests in Europe condemned private jet usage due to their perceptions of its impact on the environment. Some politicians called for more thorough regulation of private jets, some said that taxation should be increased, and others even suggested that private jets should be totally banned. But penalizing the industry is not the answer to its environmental woes, particularly when business aviation is actually doing a lot of good work to secure the future of aviation as eco-friendly and carbon neutral.
EVTOLs Coming Close To Take Off

eVTOLs Coming Close to Take Off

eVTOL technology, or electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicle technology, has the potential to revolutionize the commuter experience in cities all over the world. eVTOL creators and innovators are imagining an accessible transport solution that would reduce urban traffic congestion and support the flow of passengers while also cutting carbon emissions. Combining the vertical take-off style of helicopters with the horizontal flight of airplanes, eVTOL seems ideal for intercity movements and have the potential to compete with car travel as a viable means of urban transportation if the price of such a trip can rival that of a taxi or an Uber.
What To Expect From The Autonomous Aircraft Market

What to Expect from the Autonomous Aircraft Market

For many years now we’ve been hearing about the innovations and advances empowering us to move toward pilotless planes with major aviation and industrial players already pledging their support and investment. In 2020, FedEx announced that it was working with Reliable Robotics to use small autonomous aircraft to transport cargo. In the same year, Airbus debuted its autonomous aircraft software by demonstrating its Airbus A350-1000 XWB can take off and land without any human input.
A New Level Of Connectivity For Business Jets

A New Level of Connectivity for Business Jets

Passengers' needs are always evolving with the times, and in order to keep them satisfied, business aviation has to keep up. Millennials are accounting for increasing numbers of business jet users that will expect to use inflight broadband at the same rate as they would use WIFI while at home or in the office. And with such rapid technological advances in consumer electronics, streaming and video gaming are commonplace, and even watching ultra-high definition 8K video and virtual reality (VR) interactions are also quickly becoming the norm. These advances demand increasingly powerful inflight broadband—a new level of connectivity for business jets.
Industry And Government Efforts To Deliver Zero Emission Flight

Industry and Government Efforts to Deliver Zero Emission Flight

Affecting change is all about working together—not just within an industry but with external partners. There can be little doubt that a solid industrial strategy is a key to producing real change in how an industry does business and the impact of its practices. It’s vital for the whole government to work in partnership with industry in order to lay out the long-term direction needed to instill new best practices and maintain confidence for ongoing investment.
