ABACE2018 Education Sessions Examine the Future of Business Aviation

April 9, 2018

Education is a key component of the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE), which runs April 17-19 in Shanghai, China, and this year’s sessions are designed with a look toward the industry’s future.

“The education sessions largely focus on what’s ahead in business aviation and are intended to provide attendees with a glimpse of what they can expect in the years to come,” said Brian Koester, NBAA manager of operations. “We hope they will come away with a greater understanding of some of the issues business aviation is confronting and how to navigate the landscape.”

On Tuesday, April 17, education sessions look at the future of helicopters in Asia; how the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) will impact business aviation, and why operators should prepare now; and the issue of cyber security and how to keep aircraft and passengers secure.

On Wednesday, April 18, attendees can learn about the process of financing aircraft and hangars as experts talk about financing assets and opportunities for investing in infrastructure, and when it might be time for a company to build a hangar versus leasing.

A session on foreign registries is set for Thursday, April 19, with a focus on why off-shore aircraft registries are becoming more popular than more traditional national aircraft registries.

Presented in partnership with the Shanghai Airport Authority, and co-hosted by NBAA and the Asian Business Aviation Association, ABACE2018 brings together exhibitors displaying the latest aircraft and aviation equipment and products, as well as numerous opportunities for attendees to network with industry professionals.
