NBAA Webinar To Offer Covid-19 Update

 - March 18, 2020, 6:19 PM

This story is part of AIN's continuing coverage of the impact of the coronavirus on aviation.


NBAA will host a webinar on updated Covid-19 guidance from medical and international operations experts at 11 a.m. EDT on Friday. The webinar will focus on limiting exposure and reducing the risk of spreading Covid-19 onboard aircraft.

The webinar is based on a recently released Safety Alert for Operators (SAFO) by the FAA. The SAFO, informed in part by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, was primarily developed for airlines. “But they do have implications for the business aviation community,” NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen said in a video message posted to Twitter.

The free, hour-long webinar will feature a discussion on the new guidance by NBAA v-p for international and regulatory operations Doug Carr, MedAire’s Dr. Paulo Alvez, and OpsGroup Team Members representative David Mumford. They also will discuss further considerations for protecting the health and safety of passengers, crew, and flight department personnel. Registration is required.
