When business and aviation leaders from around the country gather March 1 in Washington, DC for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s 17th Annual Aviation Summit, the message that business aviation provides jobs and serves as an economic driver will be front and center.

In this year’s program, a No Plane No Gain ad will tout the many positive aspects of the industry.

“One industry generates over 1.2 million manufacturing and service jobs right here in America, provides a lifeline for businesses and small towns who have lost their commercial airline service and delivers emergency relief to neighbors and communities in times of crisis,” the ad reads.

“Business Aviation: It’s Working for America.”

NBAA, which along with the General Manufacturers Aviation Association sponsors the No Plane No Gain advocacy campaign, also is a sponsor of the summit.

“Business aviation is vital to America’s economy and transportation system, and this ad will put that message in front of policy makers and opinion leaders at the summit,” noted NBAA Senior Vice President of Communications Dan Hubbard. “It is essential to thousands of companies of all types and sizes in the U.S., which are often trying to compete in a global marketplace from small towns and communities that often have little or no airline service.

“Equally important, business aircraft are very often used to support humanitarian causes, and provide relief in the wake of natural disasters,” he added.

The annual Aviation Summit brings together top leaders in business, aviation, and government to publicly discuss one of the most important U.S. industries. Each year, the event brings together about 1,000 attendees made up of CEOs and executive leaders from across the aviation and aerospace industries, as well as influencers from inside and outside the Washington beltway.
