The fourth annual Avinode Academy will soon be upon us and once again we are returning to the city of Miami in the sunshine state of Florida.

The fourth annual Avinode Academy will soon be upon us and once again we are returning to the city of Miami in the sunshine state of Florida. Avinode Academy will take place at the Thompson Miami Beach Hotel, kicking off with a networking cocktail hour at 7pm on Wednesday 29th April. The Academy sessions will then begin at 9am on Thursday 30th in the hotel.

Avinode Academy is the premier networking event for the charter industry in addition to being an educational forum for marketplace members. The event provides the opportunity for attendees to forge new business partnerships while taking part in a live forum where general thoughts and observations can be shared.

This year, we have an exciting line-up of leading aviation guest speakers including aviation attorney Kent Jackson and Dayton Lehman, formerly with the DOT’s enforcement office. We are also pleased to announce a panel comprised of representatives from Stratos Jet, Jet Linx, Solairus and Air Royale.

General topics to be covered at Avinode Academy include:

  • Inefficiencies in the industry – which technologies have you adopted to increase your proficiency and gain a competitive advantage?
  • Guaranteed pricing – a viable future or improbable dream?
  • ACANA & broker certification – what are the expectations and guidelines for a mutually beneficial broker/operator working relationship?
  • General aviation today – what does your business demand today compared to five years ago?

If you’d like to attend this year’s Avinode Academy, please register your attendance here. We look forward to seeing you there!
