John Winant, NBAA’s first president, died on January 13 at the age of 85. Elected to the association’s board of directors in 1957, he became its first full-time head in 1971. During his 15-year leadership, NBAA’s membership tripled to almost 3,000 companies, and its annual meeting and convention became one of the world’s largest aviation events. He was instrumental in drawing together business aviation associations from around the world to form the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC).
