Amanda Applegate, Senior Transactional Attorney with the Aerlex Law Group, will be in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Thursday, January 28, 2016, to meet with existing and prospective clients when the National Business Aviation Association (“NBAA”) conducts a day-long Regional Forum at the Palm Beach International Airport (PBI). The January event is the first in a series of three one-day conferences sponsored by NBAA each year at selected airports and FBOs (fixed-base operators) around the country and will be open to attendees from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Amanda Applegate has been practicing aviation law for 18 years, initially with NetJets, where she served as Vice President and Associate General Counsel, and for the past 4½ years with Aerlex. She has developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the nation’s best business aviation attorneys and is known worldwide for her monthly columns published in BusinessAir magazine. The West Palm Beach Regional Forum will offer current and prospective Aerlex clients in the Southeastern United States with a convenient opportunity to meet Ms. Applegate and discuss matters with her face-to-face.

NBAA Regional Forums are educational and peer networking conferences that bring together current and prospective business aircraft owners, operators, manufacturers, customers and other industry professionals to share information and discuss issues affecting aviation in the region. The conference also provides a valuable introduction for local business leaders interested in learning more about the aviation industry.

The West Palm Beach Regional Forum will offer over 140 indoor exhibitors and approximately 25 planes participating in a static display of aircraft. The static display offers a unique opportunity for potential buyers and operators to compare and examine the latest business aircraft side by side in one location. At the indoor exhibit halls, attendees can view and learn about the latest aviation equipment, products, services and supplies.

Education sessions are a key component of every regional forum, and industry experts will provide valuable information on various business aviation topics during seminars throughout the day. Subjects will include an opening session on “Advocating for Business Aviation” that will touch on important legislative, regulatory and operational issues that will affect the industry in the coming year. Additional seminars will focus on trends in business aircraft financing, aircraft sharing options, and the new potential for business aircraft operations in Cuba.
