NATA releases 2012 events schedule

The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) has released its 2012 schedule of educational seminars and events. NATA also recently released an events catalog, which can be accessed on the association’s homepage.

“This coming year is shaping up to be one of the most pivotal years ever for our members,” said NATA President and CEO James K. Coyne. “We’re going to have an election, both in the White House and at the congressional level, which is very much going to determine the ability of our members to meet the needs of their customers. We also have a fiscal crisis across the country at the federal, state, and local levels that really puts many general aviation airports at risk. If any of our members have ever thought about participating in NATA events, this is the year to do it.”
