The Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands was the only foreign aircraft register attending the 72nd annual National Business Aviation Association convention and exhibition in Las Vegas this year.

The Cayman Islands’ delegation that exhibited at the trade show together with the aviation authority, included fixed-base operator and ground handler Island Air and Cayman Enterprise City. The Department of Tourism and Maples law firm supplied general destination and legal materials.

“The NBAA 2019 tradeshow is a signature event for the CAACI in the promotion of the Cayman Islands Aircraft Registry and the greater Cayman Islands aviation industry,” said CAACI Director-General Richard Smith. “As the largest business/corporate aviation tradeshow globally which seeks to attract upwards of 25,000 attendees and over 1,000 exhibitors over three days, it is important that the Cayman Islands Aircraft Registry is represented at such an inspiring, interactive and innovative convention.”

More than 100 aircraft were displayed at Henderson Executive Airport, inside the convention centre and at various exhibitor booths on the show floor.
