NBAA president Ed Bolen, left, peeked in on Cirrus CEO Alan Klapmeier yesterday as he sat behind the controls of the Minnesota lightplane maker’s single-engine compact business jet, being shown here for the first time at EBACE in full-scale mockup form. Klapmeier’s new jet is an example of a growing crop of very light business and personal jets that are serving as the impetus for a recently announced show to be hosted by NBAA. Called the Light Business Airplane Exhibition & Conference (LBA2009), the event will take place for the first time next March 12 to 14 in San Diego, California.
See You at LBA2009
