The Utah Business Aviation Association’s (UBAA’s) third annual Safety Day will be held Wednesday, September 28 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Ogden-Hinckley Airport (KOGD) in Ogden. More than 100 people are expected.
This year’s Safety Day is the first to be held at KOGD instead of Salt Lake City International (KSLC).

“I just can’t tell you how valuable this event will be for the Utah business aviation community,” said Kristi Ivey, NBAA Northwest Regional Representative. “Jeff Hansen, the UBAA chair and his volunteer planning team put forth a spectacular effort, and this year’s Safety Day really has something for everyone.“
