Our leaders in Washington are making decisions every day that impact our industry. The 2017 Aviation Business Conference (ABC) provides important advice, access and information to give aviation businesses a competitive edge and offer insights into what is happening in Washington that could impact their bottom lines. For 2017, NATA is providing conference participants an opportunity to meet with their elected representatives to discuss the issues impacting aviation businesses – particularly the airlines’ proposal to create a user-fee funded air traffic control corporation. Constituents are the industry’s best representatives and it has never been more important for the voice of aviation business to be heard in the corridors of power.

The 2017 Aviation Business Conference is once again located just steps away from Capitol Hill, making it easy for you to visit with your legislators. When you register for the conference, please indicate your interest in taking part in meetings on Capitol Hill. The earlier you register, the easier it is to arrange your participation at this important moment in the debate on the future of our nation’s air traffic control system.

Other events taking place include NATA’s Industry Excellence Awards Presentation Luncheon as well as several other social and networking opportunities.

Attendees will gain new solutions to current business and economic challenges, and have a chance to network one-on-one with their peers. Please don’t miss D.C.’s most comprehensive aviation business and policy event designed to advance the priorities of aviation businesses across the board .
