Today, the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) announced the purchase of the Independent Fixed Base Operators Association (IFBOA).
“The addition of IFBOA is a win for everybody, helping NATA better serve smaller independent operators and creating opportunities to attract new members,” stated NATA President and CEO Tom Hendricks. “NATA is particularly appreciative of the efforts of IFBOA founder John Wraga and his team in providing value to the IFBOA membership. This purchase will ensure the aviation business community speaks with a unified voice through NATA’s advocacy efforts in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere.”
IFBOA’s lauded workers’ compensation insurance program, featuring a highly desirable “Good Experience Return” will continue to be available for IFBOA members. This program is administered by AirSure, Ltd and underwritten by “A” rated carrier QBE. Another key advantage of this transaction for IFBOA members is the availability of popular NATA programs and services like Safety 1st, NATA Compliance Services, and NATA Aviation Solutions. NATA’s Workers’ Compensation Insurance Program is now underwritten by QBE and includes the “Good Experience Return.”
“The acquisition of IFBOA strengthens NATA significantly. The NATA Board took advantage of this opportunity to move very strategically to ensure long-term benefits for the entire aviation business community and to strengthen our collective voices with a unified message heard loudly and clearly in Washington,” concluded Hendricks.
