The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has updated its Management Guide to include details on how business aviation departments can begin transferring their aircraft records to safer, more secure digital versions.

The NBAA Management Guide has long been considered the “go-to” when it comes to details, processes, and management for the entire business aviation industry. The guide now includes supporting documentation for companies like Bluetail, that are working towards a digitized future in business aviation.

The updated guidance comes after years of discussing the importance and evolution of digital solutions, as well as the increased prevalence of digital and cloud-based MRO systems — including digitizing records and using digital signatures.

“Business aviation is continually evolving and, like other industries, the future is digital,” said Roy Gioconda, NBAA Mx Committee member and Vice President of Solutions at Bluetail. “This new guidance is going to be an amazing tool to help all business aviation departments get up to speed, especially when digitizing their aircraft records.”

The NBAA Management Guide was last updated in January 2022, and included the addition of Diversity and Inclusion guidance. Future revisions are planned to be released annually.
