After 75 years NBAA recalls pioneering spirit
The NBAA was established in 1947 and represents business aviation around the world. In this, its 75th anniversary, it will highlight historic moments to inspire future generations, starting with Throwback Thursdays.

The NBAA, founded this week in 1947, begins celebrating its 75th anniversary as the leading advocate for business aviation with a series of initiatives designed not only to recognise the milestones marking the industry's pioneering spirit, but to inspire the next generation of leaders to be a part of the business aviation community.

“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,” says president and CEO Ed Bolen. “Everything we do will be focused on engaging our community to be a part of this exciting story.”

The anniversary kicks off with a 'Throwback Thursday' series on the association's social media platforms, showcasing the trailblazing leaders and legends who have shaped the world-leading industry that is business aviation today. A special hashtag, #NBAA75, can be used to take part in the conversation and follow all of NBAA's 75th anniversary initiatives.

A variety of other celebratory initiatives will follow, culminating at the 2022 NBAA-BACE in October in Orlando, Florida.

Since its incorporation on 13 February, 1947 as the Corporation Aircraft Owners Association, NBAA has worked to foster an environment in which business aviation can thrive.

The organisation represents more than 11,000 companies and promotes policies that support business aviation in the US and around the world, including those that continually enhance the safety, security and sustainability of business aviation flight, with equitable access to airports and airspace.
