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. This year, the QBE Workers Compensation Insurance Program announced a total Good Experience Return (GER) of $6.1 Million to participating members. The QBE Program averages a 20% GER since its inception.

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.
