‘No Plane, No Gain’ Goes Local

 - October 18, 2011, 4:34 PM

Starlink Aviation vice president of sales and marketing Brenda Libby and Charlie Bravo Aviation CEO René Banglesdorf have partnered with NBAA and the “No Plane, No Gain” advocacy campaign to launch a grassroots effort to educate policy and business decision makers at the national, state/provincial or local level about business aviation. The goal, they said, is “to develop an easy-to-use presentation for those in the business aviation industry to use in their personal spheres of influence.” Banglesdorf said, “If each of us can take [the No Plane, No Gain] data and reach the decision makers in our communities, we can give our industry a huge shot in the arm.” According to Libby, “We saw a significant increase in charter activity in Montreal when I took the time to present the benefits of business aviation and dispel the myths often presented in the media, to the local business community. Business leaders and decision makers understand the vision quickly.” Libby and Banglesdorf are gathering names and contact information so they can invite interested volunteers to a webinar early next month. During the web conference, participants will see the final multimedia presentation and receive suggestions for implementing a program in their local area.
