A wide range of aviation companies will be represented in AVweb's launch of its Three Rs Affordable Aircraft Initiative to boost the refurbishing and remanufacturing sector of the industry. "We expect about 15 participants for [today's] round table discussion [at AOPA Summit] in Palm Springs," said AVweb Publisher Tom Bliss. The discussion will be held in the executive boardroom of the PSP Hilton Hotel next to the Palm Springs Convention Center starting at 2 p.m. Thursday. Check out this podcast for a preview.
Bliss said there are more than 30 industry participants involved in the Three Rs Affordable Aircraft Initiative. He said the idea is to boost that sector of the industry with an eye to creating business opportunities for companies involved in engine, airframe and avionics repair and rebuilding. The meeting Thursday will cover the gamut of issues involved in creating these market opportunities and is open to anyone interested in the plan.
