New Bizav Group To Share Best COVID-19 Practices

The CleanFlying Coalition will promote health safety measures.

The recently launched CleanFlying Coalition is a nonprofit group of private aviation companies committed to promoting and implementing best health practices in the COVID-19 era. Industry data provider FlightAware organized the coalition, whose founding members include Atlantic Aviation, FlightSafety International, ForeFlight, Global Appearance Partners, Go Rentals, Keystone Aviation, Simcom, and Tac Air.

The group's mandate is to share health safety measures adopted by the business aviation community, which will help drive demand and utilization for private aviation. Its website includes a resource section with continually updated sanitary guidance from agencies, as well as a news area where members can post their suggestions and information about their latest innovations.

The coalition addresses the needs of business aviation passengers who require "reassurance that the organizations supporting their flight operations are committed to their health and safety,” said FlightAware CEO Daniel Baker. “From the FBO staff to caterers to the pilots on board and everyone in between, sharing that you’re a member of this coalition will give travelers and flight departments confidence that the company is committed to a clean and safe flying experience.”
