Florida Aviation Business Association
Serving the General Aviation and Business Aviation Community Since 1946

On behalf of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), I want to extend a warm welcome to those members with the Florida Aviation Business Association (FABA) – and everyone in the business aviation community – as we prepare for another NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition...

The Hall of Fame was established in 2006 to honor those who have made or continue to make significant contributions to the business aviation industry in Florida. These visionaries have acted not only on their dreams but also drawn on their professionalism and integrity...

The 70th Annual FABA Conference and Trade show was held on June 13th and 14th at The Ritz-Carlton, in Sarasota, Florida. The conference kicked off with a great turnout at the first ever FABA Beach BBQ on Sunday, June 12 on Lido Beach.

These generous members have given at least double their annual dues amount to support FABA and our efforts in Florida. Above and Beyond Members receive special recognition throughout the year in Florida Aviation Business, the Newswire weekly e-newsletter and at the annual conference.

The Boca Raton Airport has had many incarnations since the first airplane took off from its runway over 80 years ago.
