TAC AIR APA HOSTS NBAA REGIONAL FORUM

 

DENVER, Colorado (July 11, 2013) – Over 14 business aircraft, 85 exhibitors and nearly 1,000 general aviation professionals descended upon TAC Air’s facilities located at Centennial Airport for the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Regional Forum. The third of four regional forums this year, the event is a showcase of business aviation aircraft, pilots, ground support and service suppliers for the general aviation industry. In addition to exhibits, the event provides a venue for the industry to exchange information on general aviation matters such as airport policies, environmental protocols, safety and security proposals, taxation and other issues.

TAC Air APA’s general manager Dan Bryant commented, “As one of five fixed-based-operators (FBO) at Centennial Airport (APA), we’re very honored to be selected by NBAA to host this event. It’s great for the local economy, the airport, and the regional aviation community as a whole.”  NBAA alternates its annual convention of nearly 25,000 attendees between Orlando, FL and Las Vegas NV. The regional forums are a scaled down version of the annual event designed to showcase world-class general aviation exhibits at the regional level.

The static display provided a world-class exhibit of business and general aviation aircraft, especially for a regional event.  Although one of the smallest aircraft present, it was the Quest KODIAK displayed by Salt Lake City’s Keystone Aviation that was the “buzz” of the show. Designed specifically for special missions, the single engine turboprop is capable of takeoff at maximum weight on a 1,000 ft. runway and can be outfitted with floats for water takeoff and landing.

Other regional forums were held this year in Long Beach, CA, and White Plains, NY, with the final regional forum to be held September 12th in Chicago.
