Aviation Committee

The Aviation Committee serves as a source of information and education regarding business travel issues within the aviation industry.

  • Develop educational forums that present issues and promote industry dialogue
  • Identify, monitor, and communicate issues that affect business air travel
  • Provide informational tools to GBTA members, GBTA committees, and the broader corporate travel community for understanding and addressing aviation industry developments

Applications to serve on a Committee are accepted year-round and open to any GBTA member. Members serve 2-year terms running from Convention to Convention. Each Committee will be in contact shortly after an application is received. Based on the application, the Committee may either conduct an interview, hold the application or decline the applicant. Committees must maintain a 51% Direct Member and 49% Allied Member ratio. Fill out the committee application form below.
