The Forum will analyze the growth opportunities in the Very Light Jets (VLJ) market, and explore business opportunities and funding strategies for this dynamic segment of the business jet market. The event is expected to attract more than 100 executive-level industry professionals.
Scheduled panelists at VLJ West include representatives from the Aviation Accreditation Board International, DayJet, General Aero Company, ImagineAir, Linear Air, North American Jet Charter, POGO Jet, Raymond James & Associates, SATSair, and VLJ Magazine. Delegates will include senior executives representing business aviation operators, VLJ and light jet manufacturers, FBOs and airports, flight trainers, consulting firms and corresponding financial industries.
Tom Henricks, President of Aviation Week, said, "Our sold-out VLJ event last May in West Palm Beach was a great success, and our customers wanted to continue the VLJ discussion. In response, we developed VLJ West to help them uncover the keys to running a successful, safe and profitable VLJ business as the market expands."
