The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and the Independent Fixed Base Operators Association (IFBOA) formed a strategic long-term relationship in 2015. This relationship was formed to provide expanded benefits and offerings to general aviation businesses of all sizes. This combination maintains a strong voice for industry before federal and state legislators and regulators.

Both associations provide a wide array and highly effective suite of services and benefits for members. This strategic alignment greatly benefits the interests of the general aviation community and ensures a more cohesive voice for aviation businesses on key policy issues.

In December of 2017 both member Workers Compensation Insurance Programs – available from Allianz and QBE – announced a total Good Experience Return (GER) of nearly $3 Million to participating members. The QBE Program averages an 18% GER since its inception and the NATA Workers Compensation Insurance Program GER averages over 20% during the life of the Program with its current administrator.

Businesses interested in joining are urged to consider the IFBOA+ Membership, which delivers member benefits to both IFBOA and NATA member programs, including industry-leading Safety 1st training programs, networking events, access to two top-tier workers compensation insurance programs, and more.
