I know you all are getting inundated during these trying times. I don't want to overwhelm you, but I do want to share information as quickly as I know it. I appreciate your time and help sharing this information with your membership.
Amid all the chaos and disruption the coronavirus is causing, NBAA is here working for you. Ed Bolen and our Government Affairs team are working tirelessly to be sure our industry is a part of the government relief package. They are in constant communications with the Hill, the FAA Administrator, and other stakeholders. Yesterday NBAA sent a letter along with other general aviation associations to the Hill addressing relief. To read the letter and view other resources, please visit https://nbaa.org/uncategorized/relief-package-must-preserve-general-aviations-vital-role-nbaa-tells-congressional-leaders/
In addition, we have set up a special Contact Congress page to help you reach your legislators regarding relief during this pandemic. We need your help to make sure air carriers that provide charter services under Part 135, and fractional providers operating under Part 91 subpart K continue to connect communities. Please visit https://nbaa.org/advocacy/contact-congress/ to contact your legislators today.
Ed Bolen is also hosting a free webinar tomorrow March 20th that addresses the FAA’s Safety Alerts for Operators (SAFOs) outlining guidance for the aviation community for limiting exposure and reducing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 onboard aircraft. Visit https://nbaa.org/aircraft-operations/safety/coronavirus/video-ed-bolen-invites-you-to-a-covid-19-update-webinar/ to sign up for this free webinar.
If there is anything I or NBAA can do to help, please let me know.
Take care and stay healthy,
