New Industry White Paper Addresses General Aviation Options, Benefits
- On-Demand Charter
- Jet Card Program
- Fractional Aircraft Ownership
- Joint Aircraft Ownership
- Full Aircraft Ownership
NBTA Aviation Committee Co-Chair James Sisco said, “Many companies use private aviation to save time getting from point A to point B, most often gaining more time to spend with a client or making sales. This white paper outlines the options businesses have when considering general aviation, offering insights and resources for each, helping companies to make informed and educated decisions on what options are best for specific needs.”
The white paper advises travel managers to develop a mission profile, identifying corporate needs such as frequency of travel, common destinations, and average lengths of trips. Corporations are also encouraged to develop general aviation polices and procedures to ensure a private aircraft is utilized as a management tool for improving efficiency and effectiveness in the marketplace.
The white paper will be available on USB drive wrist bands to attendees of the 2009 NBTA Convention at the Discover NBTA booth (#1127) and on NBTA’s website: .
