Conferences & Symposiums

Annual Meeting and Aviation Business Conference

"I had no idea what to expect going in but found there was a great balance of different topics and speakers that pertained to me."

"NATA always seems to be one step ahead in understanding the issues that will affect the aviation industry and takes a strong and meaningful position when representing its membership."

"It's the Who's Who event of the year for our industry."

"Spending time with peers is invaluable to processing the industry and visioning for one’s own business."

"NATA continues to provide valuable resources to their members on behalf of general aviation."

"I really think NATA is a great organization that focuses on the main goal of everyone that works in aviation....SAFETY. They discuss topics that other organizations might not cover because of the content and NATA will make that information known and then actually listen to comments."

"Met my expectations. This was my second conference. Both were great."

Ground Handling Safety Symposium

"If there is one ground handling safety event for an FBO manager or leader to attend, this is it! The info-sharing, exchanges and topics help to provide potential solutions for FBO safety personnel to take home to their facility."

"Networking and sharing both positive and negative experiences in our businesses was very helpful. Ideas and strategy sharing for FBOs is very helpful."

"The case studies were excellent! Great info-sharing!"

"I really appreciate the dialogue and conversations throughout the sessions. It really shows the value of interactions between other safety professionals and how we can all solve problems in the industry."

"As a small organization, it is helpful to hear from larger companies that have much more refined safety programs."

Aviation Leadership Conference

"As a first time conference attendee, but long-time member I found the conference to be a great opportunity to focus on industry-wide issues and network with other aviation business owners and experts."

"This event consistently provides some of the best insight into industry issues and trends of any aviation conference."

"Attending this event allows you to not only stay abreast of many of the top issues in the industry, and have the ability to discuss them with the senior executives and experts in their fields, the knowledge you gain will ultimately help you as develop your company strategic plans."

Industry Town Halls & Air Charter Forums

"I found the NATA meeting to be very informative and am hoping that there will be more in the future."
"It was a great opportunity to meet other aviation professionals and discuss the issues facing the Part 135 sector of business aviation. The 4.5 hour drive each way from was worth it. Thank you NATA for listening and for all the hospitality!"

Professional Development

FBO Success Seminar

"I’ve been to the FBO Success Seminar twice, the first time was in 2012 and again in 2017. We’ve seen a dramatic increase in profitability for the company. The FBO Success Seminar is the only seminar being offered for FBO owners and managers that focuses on customer service, profitability and how to find the right balance that works for you. If you follow the steps, you will be successful.”

"The FBO Success Seminar was simply the best program I've attended. Thank you so very much for such a focused, thought-provoking, and business-specific seminar. I learned a lot and came back energized ready to make positive changes at my FBO with profitability and customer service as the cornerstones."

"Gave a good cross section of solutions for a wide range of operational challenges."

"An invaluable training tool that all FBO department managers should utilize." 

Certified Customer Service Representative Program

"I appreciate the program because I feel the financial return on my company's investment toward my attendance will be evidenced by my ability to grow our number of loyal customers, increase sales, and contribute to a greater adherence toward safety measures. All resulting in profitability for our organization. I highly recommend all airports/FBOs to make this investment in their people and customer service by allowing each CSR, line tech and operations personnel to attend this beneficial program."

"The CCSR Program gave me a clear understanding of everything a pilot looks for in an FBO and the perfect way to deliver an exceptional experience to every customer."

"I enjoyed the training, it gave me a lot of great ideas and different perspectives. This event really helped me think of new ways I can improve my customer service at my FBO."
