BACA Training Sessions at Air Charter Expo (ACE’17)

A full schedule of FREE training and discussion sessions is being assembled for this year’s Air Charter Expo, which takes place at London Biggin Hill Airport on Tuesday September 12th.

Here are some of the highlights:

* CEO Breakfast Briefing
Hosted and chaired by the Chairman of BACA, this is an opportunity for senior management to discuss the state of the market and the key issues that need to be addressed, such as disruptive technology and globalisation.  This session is also a key opportunity to help shape the future of BACA and deliver the maximum value to our members.

* Paynode Session
PayNode
, the world’s first payment platform created specifically for business aviation is sponsoring the CEO Briefing. Business aviation CEOs and CFOs will have the opportunity to hear the latest predictions for the UK, US and Eurozone economies, interest rates and exchange rates from Jeremy Cook, Chief Economist & Head of Currency Strategy at World First, with introductions from Magnus Henriksson, Global Business Director, PayNode. This session is a must for senior executives whose investment and trading decisions depend upon a correct reading of economic trends in key international markets. A regular on BBC News, BBC Radio, Bloomberg TV and various leading blogs and newspapers, Jeremy Cook is an expert on risk mitigation and hedging strategies. With a strategic emphasis, he is able to put a forward thinking perspective on current market indicators and the long term implications of fiscal and monetary policy. His strong background in macroeconomics will also shed light on Brexit and the implications on international trading.

* Risk Management and Insurance

A panel of experts from Hayward Aviation, Mountfitchet Risk Solutions and ITIC looks at insurable risks for charter brokers, including professional indemnity and operator risk. Session moderated by Hayward.

* The Role of a Broker
BACA’s traditional broker training, delivered by senior brokers from Hunt & Palmer and ACC Aviation, who know how to demonstrate true value in the charter transaction, from both a bizav and commercial aircraft charter perspective.

* Law for Brokers
Practical guidance from Stevens & Bolton for brokers on the law of agency, key terms in charter contracts and potential bear traps.

* The Operators’ Perspective
Leading operators SaxonAir and Cello Aviation will provide guidance on what it takes to provide a truly memorable customer experience, and the difficulties that can make it all go wrong. They will give advice on how to smooth along the operator/broker working partnership to the benefit of everyone.

* Ground Handling Masterclass
Brokers will learn about ground handling from experts at Weston Aviation, enabling the broker and FBO to provide the best integrated service to clients.

* Aircraft Spotlight
Sovereign Business Jets and Piaggio Aerospace will demonstrate aircraft in a spotlight session among the static display, educating and enthusing the brokers about the aircraft and operator products.

Session details are still being finalised – and remember, all of them are FREE to attend!

Add to this around 60 exhibiting companies and a static display that includes the first UK air show appearance of the Dassault Falcon 8X and you have a truly must attend day.

Please register as many of your staff as can be made available.

I look forward to welcoming you to ACE’17.

Kind regards
Richard Mumford
