NBAA celebrates success of IOC
More than 400 industry professionals attended the NBAA International Operators Conference in Los Angeles, gaining valuable insights into how the future of global business aviation is taking shape.

Following the close of its 2022 International Operators Conference, the NBAA says its welcomed more than 400 industry professionals through its doors.

“As international business aviation continues to reemerge, so do the potential challenges, including remaining COVID protocols and now the war in Ukraine,” says CAM, NBAA director of flight operations and regulations Brian Koester. “NBAA and its International Operations Committee have been pleased to gather the industry's best experts to help attendees prepare for tomorrow's business aviation landscape in all parts of the world.”

In addition to the host of sessions focused on regional considerations and the latest COVID-19 protocols, discussions focused on e-plotting and paperless cockpits, the latest weather-related technologies and online resources, expert guidance on risk-assessment processes, international cybersecurity concerns and more. A special panel of FAA representatives hosted a session to provide guidance for international operators' specific questions.

Five rising leaders in the international operations arena were also honoured with nearly $14,000 to help them excel in their business aviation careers.

“More than any previous IOC, this year's conference raised the bar in bringing the industry together to remain on top of the ever-changing global aviation landscape,” adds Koester. “We look forward to moving forward on several of the conversations we had this week at our EBACE2022 and other NBAA events this year.”

The 2023 International Operators Conference is slated for 13-15 February in Austin, Texas
