In support of an expansion for the VLJ air-taxi market currently budding in the East, key industry players will meet in San Diego Nov. 27 and 28 to continue discussion (initiated in a May forum) of popular business models for VLJ operators. The event offers an opportunity to interact with industry peers and business partners with an overall objective of ensuring the market succeeds. Panel members will speak on subjects including analysis of trends and opportunities throughout the value chain -- operators, manufacturers, MRO, FBOs and other service providers. Other topics range from a dissection of established business models to explore their hits and misses, exploration of funding strategies and a discussion on how to grow the VLJ market both in the U.S. and abroad. The two-day event will explore all aspects of the emerging market, covering risk management and the effects of current and future distribution of technology and airport infrastructure.
