- 1. Gettin' Down (River) to Business
It was the best of times and it was, well ... the best of times. In fact, as the corporate aviation industry gathered this week in New Orleans for the 53rd National Business Aviation Association Annual Meeting and Convention, cold winds and damp ramps couldn't dislodge the smiles. So far, this year's NBAA extravaganza seems headed to break records, with more than 29,000 attendees and some 150 aircraft on static display. By Dave Hidgon.
- 2. NBAA 2000: A Multibillion-Dollar Baby
Now that the 53rd NBAA Annual Meeting and Convention is in the history books, it's time to sit down and tote up the dollars exchanged and the forecasts presented and to take a closer look at the industry snapshot that this year's event presented. Highlights include news from the world of fractionals, more on New Piper's Meridian; a supersonic bizjet, whether Japan Inc. will become involved with general aviation and updates to several development programs.
