NBAA launches Legacy Society


The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has launched the NBAA Legacy Society in recognition of its 75th anniversary.

The Legacy Society is a new advanced level of membership which Airbus Corporate Jets, Textron Aviation, Boeing and others have signed up to.

A portion of the cost of the membership will be allocated to NBAA charities to support scholarship opportunities, and Society members can choose where the funds are directed.

In exchange, Society members will be front and centre at conferences and events, beginning with the NBAA Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (NBAA-BACE).

“The society honours the past 75 years of industry achievements and growth while looking to the future of business aviation,” said Ed Bolen, CEO and president, NBAA. “This anniversary year offers an opportunity for everyone to take part in telling our industry’s story of innovation and achievement so that business aviation is even stronger seven decades from today.”

He added: “In that spirit, this special anniversary year membership is a way to recognise the industry’s past and ensure its continued success.”

Earlier this month, the NBAA launched a website to help the victims of Hurricane Ian which hit Florida in September. The association said NBAA-BACE at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, will go ahead as planned on October 18th as the centre and airport were not damaged by the storm.
