Practical Applications in Business Aviation Management

One of America’s most important yet least understood industries is business aviation. Most organizations (about 85%) operating business aircraft are small and medium-size enterprises, which comprise a wide range of organizations: state governments, universities, charitable organizations, and all types of businesses. These organizations all have one thing in common, which is the need for fast, flexible, safe, and secure access to destinations worldwide. Business aviation is an important connection to the rest of the world, due to the fact that many small U.S. businesses rely on business aviation, and they are located in markets where the airlines have reduced or eliminated service. In an intensely competitive global marketplace, business aviation fosters efficiency and productivity and is essential. This textbook examines business aviation with an aim to provide a complete understanding of the industry. Information on all aspects of managing a corporate aviation program is presented. The book begins with a brief look at the history of business aviation and its important role in the aviation industry. Focus is then moved on the practical issues facing all corporate aviation programs, such as the following: Regulatory compliance; Administrative issues; Aircraft and facility maintenance; Finances and budgeting; Aircraft selection and acquisition; Standard operating procedures; International operations; Human resource management; Training; Communication and teambuilding; and Safety and security, among others. Students and professionals who need comprehensive, accurate, and practical information on managing a corporate aviation program should find this book to be a useful tool.
