Nevada Airports Association Changes its Name to Nevada Aviation Association
The Nevada Airports Association Board of Directors on October 2, 2020 voted to change its name to the Nevada Aviation Association. The name change is another step in the evolution of the association which was first organized in 2005 as the Nevada Airport Managers Association and reflects NvAA’s new mission to promote and support Nevada’s airports and the larger aviation community. Over the next 2 months NvAA will transition to the Nevada Aviation Association and initiate implementation of its goal to expand membership to include providers of aviation related products and services; airline, helicopter, UAV and fixed based operators, charter companies and other aviation related organizations and agencies.
