Seasoned Politicians Talk About The Aero-Political Scene At NBAA 2012
The last few months have not been good to the world of aviation... but last fall, there was plenty of data to support the premise that 2013 would be no easier than 2012... and NBAA 2012 provided an amazing place to discuss these issues. In this segment, Senator Jerry Moran, representing the "Very-Aviation" state of Kansas opined as to the what the political climate might have in store for the world of aviation... and it was a most interesting discussion.
Since joining the U.S. Senate, Senator Moran has also been a leading advocate for issues related to entrepreneurship, job creation, and innovation. He is committed to putting policies in place that foster a pro-growth environment where businesses can succeed without government imposed barriers.
In November 2012, Senator Moran was unanimously elected into Senate Republican Leadership by his colleagues to serve as Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC). In this new role, Moran is working to recruit the most qualified and dynamic candidates and to raise the resources necessary to make a difference in the 2014 election.
NBAA2012 closed with 25,150 people in attendance, a number comparable to the final Attendee total of 26,077 for the 2011 Convention, and to the final Attendee total of 24,206 for the 2010 event. The number of Exhibitors at the Orange County Convention Center was 1,073; booth spaces totaled 4,361, an increase over last year’s booth-space total. A total of 105 aircraft were shown on two separate static displays, and an additional four aircraft were shown inside the convention center. The show drew Attendees from all 50 U.S. states and 87 countries.
