Anybody Got A Fork?
Since the April 18 Olcott letter, things have been much quieter on the NBAA front. Although the past few weeks’ events have clearly put a strain on things, no new eruptions have been noticed, either at the NBAA or from among its recent departures. One can almost hear the sigh of relief -- kind of like a King Air winding down at the end of a long day -- from among business aviation’s faithful that this latest chapter of the NBAA’s history seems to be behind it. Sticking the fork in this episode -- especially when it’s trying to find a new president -- probably can’t come too soon for the association’s board, staff and members. In the meantime, the NBAA maintains its search for a new president and continues to solicit ideas, names and other input from its members. The content of that input -- as well as its quality and quantity -- remain internal to the association: Ken Emerick, the board member responsible for collecting it, was not available when AVweb spoke with NBAA staff earlier in the week. Not surprisingly, there are no new rumors on whom the NBAA’s next leader will be.
