The pavilion, which will be located at the outdoor aircraft display at Henderson Executive Airport, will be open on October 12 and 13 and serve as a hub for single-pilot turboprop and jet operators to network and participate in educational programs.

“Owner-pilots are not just a key part of the business aviation community: they’re innovators, thought leaders and groundbreaking entrepreneurs,” said Andrew Broom, NBAA senior vice president for strategy, marketing, and innovation. “This pavilion is more than just a place to gather—it’s a new platform for fostering deeply shared peer connections, to everyone’s benefit. We’re pleased to partner with the owner-pilot groups on this exciting new initiative.”

As of September 29, pavilion presenters include aircraft manufacturers Textron Aviation, Daher, and Embraer; engine manufacturer Pratt & Whitney Canada; in-flight communication company Smartsky Networks; maintenance tracking and digital aircraft records company SierraTrax; and Astronaut Hall of Fame member and NBAA board member Charlie Precourt. The pavilion will also showcase owner pilot associations.

The owner/single-pilot pavilion programming expands the educational offerings that NBAA has traditionally offered for that group. Historically, the day before the convention kicks off, NBAA hosts a Single-Pilot Safety Standdown. That tradition will continue with the 2021 standdown on October 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Room W206 of the Las Vegas Convention Center West Hall. In addition, NBAA will host a National Safety Forum on October 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Room W232 at the Las Vegas Convention Center West Hall.
