NATA AIR CHARTER SUMMIT STARTS TODAY
Alexandria, VA, June 11, 2012 — The National Air Transportation Association’s (NATA) annual Air Charter Summit kicks off this evening at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles with a welcome reception. Based on pre-registration numbers, NATA is expecting an increase in attendance over last year.
“We are looking forward to an engaging and information-packed summit,” said NATA President and CEO James K. Coyne. “This year we have added more fun with a casual evening barbecue and an opportunity to win prizes while helping to support combat wounded soldiers.”
On Tuesday, the agenda includes a Federal Aviation Administration regulatory review, a special announcement from NATA on a new training product, and sessions on Part 135 training concerns, guidance for developing emergency response plans and common legal questions posed by operators. Later that evening, NATA will host a BBQ featuring a raffle to benefit the Veterans Airlift Command. Click here to find out how you can help support this worthy organization.
