More than 900 of you attended our Farnborough reception, and I hope you all had a good time. Thank you to all of our sponsors, staff and volunteer board members for all of their support and work in putting together what I thought was the best reception yet. It is no secret that times are tough in our industry, and it is getting more difficult for companies to sponsor events like our receptions and conferences. It is also getting tougher for us to make the calls asking for your support. Without the support of our many sponsors throughout the year, we would not be able to hold these receptions without charging attendees, and we would have to significantly increase the cost of our conferences. Please remember that ISTAT is your not-for-profit industry association and any excess funds we have, after maintaining a prudent balance to help deal with the cyclicality of our industry, goes to the ISTAT Foundation to support aviation students and schools worldwide through scholarships and grants and also supports our various humanitarian efforts. We have been following the career paths of some of our recent scholarship recipients, and I am pleased to report that they are gainfully employed, doing well and making their impact on our industry already. When deciding how to allocate limited sponsorship dollars, I ask you to keep the above in mind. We have been working hard putting together the ISTAT 15th European Conference, which will be held in Prague in early October. We will keep inundating you with e-mails until you register, so why not register now at www.ISTAT.org. Early October is the perfect time to find those final year-end deals, and if the last two years are any indication, we should have a large group of senior aviation executives in attendance. Early October is also a great time to visit Prague and enjoy all the history and beauty that it has to offer. I hope to see many of you there. I hope you all had a wonderful summer and had the opportunity to spend some quality time with your families. Jetrader 3
