#NBAA16 was #EPIC

Written by Ian Hoyt


This year we had the opportunity to attend our first NBAA-BACE convention.

This being our first time attending NBAA made for an exciting week filled with wonderful events and plenty of opportunities for our team to connect with business aviation leaders and experts from across the world.

NBAA-BACE was located in Orlando, Florida this year at the Orange County Convention Center where over 1,100+ exhibitors came to connect with the over 27,000+ attendees.

From tasty in-flight chocolate covered treats to Olympic ping pong players, from practical innovative products to truly remarkable charter service providers, we saw just about everything at BACE.

One of our favorite aspects of the week however, was getting a chance to go through the beautiful business jets.

Orlando Executive Airport was where the convention had a static display of over 100 business jets for potential buyers and attendees to walk through and learn more about. Wilbur being a team of pilots and aviation enthusiasts, we couldn’t help but to swoon over all the good looking business jets available on the market… not to mention their beautiful branding.

How many conventions do you go to where you get to see technology like this up close and personal!?

Answer: not many.


As the attendees filed through the isles on that final day of the show, everyone in the convention cheered and hollered as the show wrapped up for yet another year. We had a blast, and our team can’t wait to exhibit there next year.

And of course, in true creative fashion we made sure to take some time for inspiration in the form of Orlando sunsets. 🙂
