March Dinner Meeting

Sponsored by:


Speaker:

Debi Cunningham, VP Marketing


Topic:

Paint & Interior 

Making your visit successful and stress-free

Maintenance planning to minimize down time

 FANS1/A Jan1 2020 Deadline- reserve your spot!





HISTORY AND HERITAGE HAVE A PLACE IN TODAY’S MOST SUCCESSFUL COMPANIES NO MATTER WHAT INDUSTRY THEY SERVE. HOWEVER, GREAT COMPANIES CONTINUE TO EVOLVE WITH THEIR CUSTOMERS AND THE MARKETS THEY SERVICE. WEST STAR AVIATION IS NO EXCEPTION. TODAY’S WEST STAR REPRESENTS THE BLENDING OF TWO TRUSTED, LONGSTANDING AVIATION SERVICE COMPANIES PREMIER AIR CENTER AND WEST STAR AVIATION.

Premier Air Center, of East Alton, IL (ALN), was founded in 1947, originally as Walston Aviation. After an ownership change in 1987, the name was changed to Premier Air Center. Since then, the company has built a solid reputation for strong technical expertise and personalized customer service for maintenance and refurbishment of corporate aircraft.


Similarly, West Star Aviation’s roots extend back to 1952 when the original company, Monarch Aviation, was founded at Walker Field, (GJT) Grand Junction, CO. On May 1, 1987, the Buescher Family of Grand Junction acquired Monarch Aviation and began the transformation of the company from an aviation sales and service business to a top-rated business aircraft maintenance and refurbishment facility.  READ MORE

H.R. 2997 seeks to privatize the nation’s air traffic control (ATC) system. NBAA strongly opposes this proposal, and now more than 100 general aviation organizations have declared their forceful opposition to the legislation.

Now Congress needs to hear from you.

I am asking you to call your member of Congress today, because this is a critical time in our battle against ATC privatization. H.R. 2997 is scheduled to be considered by the full U.S. House of Representatives next week, and the business aviation community needs to make our voices heard with members of Congress.

NBAA has established a toll-free action line to connect you with the DC offices for your members of Congress.

855-265-9002

Please call 855-265-9002 as a voter and business aviation professional to state your opposition to H.R. 2997's plans to privatize ATC.

Visit NBAA’s Contact Congress website to learn about all your options for outreach and for details on how ATC privatization would restrict GA access to airports and airspace.

This legislation is the single-greatest threat to the future of general aviation we have faced, and NBAA appreciates your continued support.

For 70 years, NBAA has promoted and protected business aviation.

Imagine facing the prospect of possible airline domination of the ATC system without having an organization such as NBAA there to represent your interests as a business aircraft operator...
