NATA (pronounced nā-ta) is the leading national trade association representing the business interests of general aviation service companies on legislative and regulatory matters at the federal level, while also providing education, services, and benefits to our members to help ensure their long-term economic success.
NATA’s nearly 3,700 member companies provide a broad range of aeronautical services to the aviation community, including: aircraft sales and acquisitions, fuel, aircraft ground support, passenger and crew services, aircraft parking and storage, on-demand air charter, aircraft rental, flight training, aircraft maintenance and overhaul facilities, parts sales, and business aircraft and fractional ownership fleet management. NATA members range in size from large companies with international presence to smaller, single-location operators that depend exclusively on general aviation for their livelihood. Smaller companies account for the majority of NATA’s membership and most NATA members have fewer than 40 employees and are designated as small businesses by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
For more than eight decades, NATA has contributed significantly to the prosperity of aviation service companies and has been a catalyst for improvement within the aviation industry.
