Many industry memberships are a great value for those who choose to join. RF System Lab is part of a number of memberships, which allow us to stay connected to the various industries we serve as well as stay up to date on news, and upcoming annual meetings or conferences offered to members.
Therefore, we’d like to feature memberships that we are a part of on the RF System Lab Inside Scope blog. Today’s featured membership is the National Business Aviation Association, better known as NBAA.
NBAA is the leading organization in Washington, DC advocating the business aviation community. The organization goes before congress, the courts, international forums, and government agencies to act as representation for policy change that effects business aviation. In addition, they have regional representation all over the country to articulate concerns regarding airport policies, safety and security proposals, taxation, and other issues.
In addition, they offer many opportunities to network with fellow aviation aficionados. NBAA’s Annual Meeting & Convention is the largest civil aviation tradeshow in the world. It is ranked in Tradeshow Week 200 magazine’s top ten for United States tradeshows. As if that isn’t already impressive enough, the tradeshow is a must-see; it annually brings together a large group of leaders and manufacturers in the aviation industry as well as government officials – over 1,000 exhibitors and 30,000 attendees to be exact.
Other networking opportunities include an industry news circuit called “Air-Mail,” regional forums that allow members to network with local peers and attend informative briefings, NBAA Standing Committees made up of volunteers who work to promote business aviation access, safety, professional development and security, and a member directory that is printed and distributed annually to NBAA’s over 8,000 members.

Another benefit worth mentioning is the NBAA’s Operations Service Group.
