Last week, several members of the BDN team attended NBAA'S Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition — the world’s largest business aviation trade show. This venue has proven to be a bellwether of trends and economic vitality for the civil aviation market. All of the major players in business aviation were well represented in Orlando, and while the total number of exhibitors may have been up, consensus was that attendance numbers were flat. That's not to say that there weren't new products and announcements to get excited about, only that it was "business as usual" at this annual show.
In this week's audio program — recorded at the end of day two of the conference — business development executive Ashley Cutler and senior designer Nick Markwardt discuss their observations and highlights from this year's show.
