ORLANDO, Fla., 31 Oct. 2012. Roughly 23,000 aviation professionals, as well as more than 1,000 exhibitors with 100-plus business jets, gathered at the National Business Aviation Administration (NBAA) 2012 annual meeting and convention this week in Orlando, Fla.

This year’s event was dedicated to “the legacy of American hero Neil Armstrong,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen during the Opening General Session on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the Association presented its 2012 Meritorious Service to Aviation Award during a moving tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen, an elite group of World War II African-American fighter pilots.
