Air Charter Committee

The NATA Air Charter Committee (ACC) is tasked to promote the interests of the association’s members holding on-demand Part 135 air carrier certificates by addressing regulatory and legislative issues and industry concerns. The committee members represent the diversity of operations found under the Part 135 regulations, and include operators of a range of aircraft from large turbine-powered business jets, to small single-engine, piston-powered airplanes, and helicopters.

The ACC, and the Part 135 industry in general, are overwhelmingly comprised of small businesses as defined by the Small Business Administration.

Members of the ACC serve two-year terms. During that time, they act as the voice of the Part 135 membership within the association to ensure that the needs of this critical industry segment are appropriately represented by the staff.

NATA members providing services to the on-demand Part 135 industry are also eligible for ACC membership. Currently, providers of simulator flight training, insurance and consulting services participate on the ACC.
