Print news offers important opportunities for explaining the value of business aviation, and NBAA and GAMA have offered countless interview opportunities to news executives to discuss the industry. Below is just a sampling of the interviews and articles the two organizations have participated in since the launch of the No Plane No Gain campaign in 2009.

Why Fly Business Aviation?

An article published by Business Travel Executive demonstrates how business aviation helps companies operate more efficiently, saves time and money and increase employee productivity. “Our customers know they are buying time and success,” said Greg Raiff, CEO of Private Jet Services Group. “Business aviation is a gateway to efficiency and productivity that flows straight to the bottom line.”

Companies Need Business Aircraft to Stay Competitive

General aviation, including business aviation, is a vital contributor to the economy in every state, and in August, the governors of New Jersey and South Carolina and mayors of cities in Kentucky and Virginia officially recognized the industry for the important role it plays. Every state, in addition to hundreds of communities throughout the United States, have highlighted general aviation over the years for its contributions to the success of companies and citizens around the country.

Video: Finding a Career in General Aviation

GAMA recently launched its video series about careers in the general aviation manufacturing and maintenance industry. “Too often people think of a job in the manufacturing industry as entailing repetitive work requiring little skill with minimal opportunity for professional growth,” said GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce. “We hope that giving the public a behind-the-scenes look at our member companies and watching talented and enthusiastic industry professionals share their stories will shift people’s perception and inspire them to consider a career in our dynamic industry.”

Business Aviation Serves Through Long-Range Air Medical Transportation

AirCARE1 provides long-range air medical transportation throughout the U.S. and around the world using two Lear 35As, a Lear 36A and a Lear 60, allowing patients to receive care near their home, seek specialty care or recover from an illness or injury at home. “Imagine being away from home and suffering a major illness or injury,” said founder Denise Waye, RN. “The ability to return to the U.S. for treatment and recovery, to be able to heal at home – it’s huge.”
