    The FAA released a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on January 10 that would update and extend Part 5 SMS requirements to Part 135 outfits, certain Part 21 certificate holders, and air tours operating under FAR 91.147.  There is a comment period now through April 11.  You can read the NPRM here.  The FAA Part 5 NPRM is reaching the end of its comment period, and so far the industry has only submitted 74 comments...most of which do not meet the mark.

    This is a critical time for the industry to rally together around Part 5, and provide feedback to the FAA.  The Tennessee Business Aviation Association (TnBAA) would like to invite all of our members and industry individuals to join them in a presentation given by Amanda Ferraro, with Aviation Safety Solutions!  The presentation will be held virtually via Zoom on March 23rd from 2pm to 3pm eastern.

    If you are a Part 91 Flight Department that operates outside the U.S., Part 135, Part 145, Manufacturer, or a Flight School, you will benefit from this discussion.

    Learn what the FAA is proposing in Part 5 and how to prepare your own comment that will benefit the industry.

    When   Thu Mar 23, 2023 2pm – 3pm (EDT)
    Where   Join Zoom Meeting Meeting ID: 813 8810 4475 Passcode: 384262

    Flight Plan Filers,

    In the event you need routes to and from Florida airports not included on the FAA Command Center website at NFDC Preferred Routes Database ( to be updated on 5/19/2022, you can utilize the following links provided by Jacksonville ARTCC (ZJX).  Use the Northbound link for flights departing Florida airports and use the Southbound link for flight landing at Florida airports.  The Florida airports in the routes in the two links include:  07FA, APF, BCT, EYW, FA54, FHB, FMY, FLL, FXE, ISM, MKY, MIA, MCO, OPF, ORL, PBI, PIE, PGD, RSW, SFB, SRQ, SUA, TMB, TPA.  Again, please file the precise route for your departure and destination airport to avoid ATC re-routes.

    Additionally, ZJX requested all filers be sent the ppt below to familiarize you with the offshore/water route structure to Florida airports in place effective 5/19/2022.  These routes will be in place until later this year with the implementation of the Northeast Corridor Atlantic Coast Routes project.

    In 2006 I joined the SFBAA.  With only 20 members at the time, I opened my big mouth and asked why there were so few when South Florida had such a large aviation community.  Next thing I knew I was the Membership Committee Chair.  By August of 2007 we had over 60 members and the current president Don Roller (a full time pilot) decided he could not commit the time necessary to run the organization.  At our mid-year board meeting he stepped down and nominated me to take over as President.

    I have been President of the SFBAA for almost 15 years and with the help of many great board members we were able to build this organization into one of the largest and most respected regional groups in the United States.  I am proud of how we were able to create a unified voice for business aviation here in South Florida and then used it to make real changes at both the state and local level that have benefitted our industry to this day.

    What I am most proud of over these last 15 years is the amount of money we have raised for charities and scholarships -- and having and the privilege of being able to give that money to its all-deserving recipients.  Our golf tournament and sponsor donations have generated over $400,000 which has been given in the form of scholarships for students continuing their education in aviation, students who strive to make our world a better place through stand-out community service, and also to charities such as Make-A-Wish and Angel Flight Southeast.  Calling a student, awarding them a scholarship, and listening to their response is something that I will always cherish.

    For the past few years I have not been able to dedicate the time necessary to maintain the organization at the level it has grown to and I have taken notice.  Behind the scenes, my brother Scott has been taking control and handling all the leg work of our events.  At our board meeting last week I decided to step down as SFBAA President and Scott was unanimously chosen by the board and committee members to take my place.  In all honesty, as most of you are aware, Scott has been helping me from the very beginning and this organization would not be where it is today without his dedication and active participation.

    I will continue to run the SFBAA Charity Golf Classic and will maintain an active position on the board, but it is time for me to step down as President.  Scott has proven himself a leader and he’s a much better delegator than I will ever be.  We have a lot of new faces on the board this year and I am excited to see the direction Scott takes us.  To all the members and sponsors, I appreciate your continued and long-lasting support.  All of our achievements are because of you.
