Note: Bloggers John Enticknap and Ron Jackson, principals of Aviation Business Strategies Group (ABSG), will be facilitating the next NATA FBO Success Seminar, now in its 10th year, in Miami on March 6-7.

Every January, FBOs begin to gear up for the annual NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers (S&D) Conference where they can attract new business to their ramp while cementing trusted relationships with current customers.

At this year’s conference, Feb. 6-9 in Long Beach, Calif., we had a chance to converse with many FBO owners and operators, as well as schedulers and dispatchers, to find out how they view the health of the industry and if there are any real concerns going forward. We believe the following statements reflect the overall opinion on each subject:

Vitality of the Industry

Airport Lease Terms

Employee Hiring and Training

100LL Market in Decline
