NBAA2005 AM&C stands for the National Business Aviation Association 58th Annual Meeting & Convention for those who dislike the current vogue for acronyms. This is being held this week from November 9 to 11 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. It features a record-setting 1,113 Exhibiting Companies and 110 static aircraft will be on display at the Orlando Executive Airport. You might think this is just another of the typical trade shows that go on throughout North America. Well it’s not so typical because the NBAA was forced to move the event from New Orleans, LA, because of the devastating impact of Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana on August 29th just over two months ago. To move a major event like this is an impressive organizational feat.
This trade show is also not at all typical for a local company that is introducing new technologies for aircraft cabin air quality systems. These are the JetAir Cabin Air Quality Systems developed by Air Data, a company well known in the local and global aerospace industry. Aircraft cabin air quality is a subject of intense interest in the industry now, given the multiple hazards that can be present in the air around us. The JetAir systems should receive a warm welcome. This is the launch of these systems on the North American continent. The Air Data booth is Number 1076. There couldn’t be a better time and a better show for such a launch than the NBAA2005 AM&C.
