FAA Administrator Steve Dickson will be a keynote speaker on the opening day (October 12) at NBAA-BACE 2021. The show will run until October 14 at the new West Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This will mark the fourth time Dickson has been a speaker at an NBAA event since he was sworn in as the FAA chief in August 2019.

“NBAA is pleased to welcome once again Administrator Dickson to NBAA-BACE,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. “His insights into issues that impact business aviation, such as safety, sustainability, diversity, and innovation, are always of the utmost interest to our attendees.”

At the NBAA-BACE 2019 (also held in Las Vegas), Dickson was featured at the Careers in Business Aviation Day, speaking to high school students, as well as at the National Safety Forum, where he discussed his perspectives on business aviation safety. He also participated in NBAA’s Virtual Business Aviation Town Hall last August, where alongside Bolen he highlighted business aviation operational and safety issues such as the controversial pilot records database rulemaking.
