Dickson to impart wisdom at NBAA virtual event
The Virtual Business Aviation Town Hall marks Steve Dickson's second NBAA appearance, following an August 2020 discussion that addressed COVID-related topics. The upcoming event will have time for questions.

The NBAA will welcome back Steve Dickson, administrator of the FAA, to a Virtual Business Aviation Town Hall taking place on 3 March at 13:00 (EST). Dickson will join with NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen in the special NBAA News Hour presentation to discuss a variety of topics of importance to business aviation stakeholders, including the latest developments affecting the industry stemming from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Other anticipated topics include greater adoption of SMS within business aviation, the FAA's ongoing work toward its nextgen air traffic control network, the industry's move toward greater sustainability and continued innovation in areas including supersonic flight and advanced air mobility or AAM.

β€œI'm pleased to welcome administrator Dickson for this informative and insightful town hall,” Bolen says. β€œIn particular, I look forward to discussing areas of shared interest and focus between our industry and the Biden administration, including our mutual goals of building a safer, more efficient, more inclusive and more sustainable business aviation industry.”

The Virtual Business Aviation Town Hall marks Dickson's second NBAA News Hour appearance, following an August 2020 discussion that addressed COVID-related topics, along with broader issues, including the FAA's notice of proposed rulemaking affecting the pilot records database.

The hour-long online town hall event will also include ample time for audience questions, offering an important opportunity for business aviation stakeholders to engage directly with the FAA and the association.

A former US Air Force officer and F-15 fighter pilot, Dickson was confirmed for a five-year term as FAA administrator by the US Senate in July 2019 following an extensive career with Delta Air Lines, during which he also served as chairman of several industry stakeholder groups and federal advisory committees.
