Kansas City Airport holds first Midwest Business Aviation event
The Midwest Business Aviation event showcases business aviation to Kansas business executives.
Kansas City Downtime Airport hosted the first ever Midwest Business Aviation event on 10 October 2013 in partnership with the Kansas City Business Aviation Association and Kansas City Aviation Department.
Kyle Eiserer, president of the Kansas City Business Aviation Association, said: “Kansas City has a tremendous amount of business aviation talent and so we wanted to highlight the services available in our immediate area. These not only include aircraft manufacturers and maintenance facilities, but also fractional operators, aircraft valuation services, media, law firms, aircraft finance specialists, and other support services.”
“We feel that the market is beginning to see positive signs again and so we encouraged a number of local organisations to visit Showcase to see the latest aircraft. We had two of the top representatives at the Showcase from NBAA and GAMA, Steve Brown and Pete Bunce. Both spoke at the event and provided updates on our industry,” added Eiserer.
Over twenty companies exhibited, including business jet and turboprop manufacturers such as Bombardier, Cessna, Embraer, Gulfstream and Quest.
Other companies also showcased at the event, Avfuel, Duncan Aviation, Elliott Aviation, Executive AirShare, Flight Options, Hangar 10, JetBrokers, Jet Support Services Inc, NetJets and Signature Flight Support.
