Earlier this year, The National Business Aviation Association invited JETNET to join the NBAA’s Leadership Council. We are proud to join the ranks of the most prestigious and influential companies in the industry. The council exists to offer support and guidance to NBAA in its critical mission to secure favorable local and national government policy for business aviation. It brings together the leading participants on the forefront of business aviation innovation.
This invitation comes to JETNET at a perfect time in our company’s growth. At this time, we all have encountered varied challenges to our businesses. Having launched our forecasting arm, JETNET iQ, www.jetnetiq.com, last year to great success, we are in the perfect position to provide factual data, gathered by our staff of researchers that will secure insight into the plans of aircraft operators worldwide.
Paul Cardarelli, JETNET’s Director of Sales and Marketing, serves as our representative on the council. He has been tireless in his promoting the industry benefits of JETNET iQ and has served as speaker at our recent iQ Summit in New York City. Cardarelli has insight gleaned from iQ that is invaluable to NBAA. “Now more than ever aircraft owners are in need of advisement and guidance with regards to ownership and purchasing decisions. For many this includes reconciling to the fact that their current aircraft has so substantially diminished in value that its retirement may be the only viable solution.” Per Cardarelli.
Another primary concern has been the world economy and the serious issues facing our industry’s growth. One of the more pointed facts to come out of the iQ research, per Cardarelli, “While China cannot be ignored for its potential as a burgeoning market for business aviation, it simply will not represent enough airframes in the short term to resurrect our industry from its current recession. For the foreseeable future North America will remain the dominion of the largest business aircraft fleet and so our attention to our customers there must not be distracted. “
Membership is exclusive and reserved for organizations seen by NBAA as playing a leadership role within our industry. For more information on the NBAA Leadership council log on to http://www.nbaa.org/membership/leadership/. And for more information on JETNET iQ, contact Paul Cardarelli
