NATA Leads Part 135 COVID-19 Task Force Formed to Address Safety Concerns

As part of a COVID-19 task force, the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) is assisting Part 135 operators to develop best practices by facilitating discussions covering flight crew safety, aircraft sanitation, and minimizing contact between aviation professionals and passengers.

“This task force will complement the important work being done by NATA’s Safety Committee in addressing operational safety concerns during the course of the pandemic and those that may lie ahead as restrictions throughout the country are lifted. NATA is pleased to serve as the bridge that unites these vital segments in ensuring the best possible operational flow for flight crew and ground-handling service professionals,” stated NATA Senior Vice President Ryan Waguespack.

NATA’s task force is anticipated to begin holding weekly calls beginning this week.  If you are a director of safety and/or director of operations for a Part 135 operator and would like to participate on the task force, please contact Ryan at
