Last Chance to Register!  Airports around Chicagoland gather to inform us on upcoming construction projects and events happening in 2020 and beyond.

The Chicago Area Business Aviation Association invites you to attend the Chicago Airports Hot Topics and Round Table event on March 5 covering important updates on construction and other projects that will impact local operations this year.  The event is being run by Jamie Abbott, Executive Director of Chicago Executive Airport in Wheeling, Illinois (PWK).

“It’s great to pull yourself away from your desk and be able to get out and talk directly with operators about the big projects we have lined up at our airports.  It’s encouraging to see the investment being made into the local business industry.”

Abbott confirms commitments from all reliever airports and the Chicago DOA (Midway).  The presentations will focus on major construction projects that will impact operations and will cover state and local funding updates for projects such as access roads, aprons, fencing, and other security measures.

The event will open with a brief update from our new NBAA Regional Representative, Paige Kroner.  Paige currently serves as the National Business Aviation Association’s Central Eastern Regional Representative and provides oversight and implementation of initiatives focused on business aviation policy advocacy. Paige joined NBAA in 2014 with a wide breadth of aviation experience. Prior to NBAA, Paige worked for Signature Flight Support serving as the manager of industry and government affairs, and then finally as FBO duty manager at Washington Dulles International Airport.

Paige has been recognized for her industry commitment and leadership with awards including the Women in Corporate Aviation’s Leadership Scholarship and the NBAA's Silk Scarf Award. She enjoys giving back to the aviation community in her participation in a wide range of industry committees including the Committee for Dulles, Women in Corporate Aviation, and the Greater Washington Business Aviation Association (GWBAA).

Paige holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College and currently resides in the suburbs of Washington, DC.
