Bizav: The Next 10 Years
What our readers had to say
Thanks for an excellent piece, with varied perspectives from many brilliant minds [“Bizav: The Next 10 Years,” October/November 2013]. I believe we can expect the largest and most mature bizav markets (particularly the U.S. and Western Europe) to behave much differently from emerging markets. I foresee considerable consolidation, with fewer, larger, stronger bizav products and service providers. The most capable, innovative and client-focused firms will thrive.

If business aviation is to prosper, there needs to be a much stronger worldwide representation of organizations such as EBAA, NBAA and MEBA, all working together to remove the outdated and restrictive bureaucracy that acts like a debilitating disease in our industry. Wouldn’t it be great if we had one aircraft registry, one worldwide aircraft certification procedure and one set of operating rules? As an example, I fail to understand why safety requirements should differ for private and commercial operations and for different countries when all aircraft fly in the same airspace and rely on safe operation by everyone.
