John Wensveen Speaks at Airline Development Seminar

Posted by on April 25th, 2012

Dr. John Wensveen, President & CEO, Airline Visions, was a key note speaker at AeroPodium’s seminar, Your New Airline: A Nonstop Flightplan to Success, at the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Airport and Cruise Port Hotel on April 20, 2012 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Dr. Wensveen’s presentation, The Airline Business Plan: The Do’s and Don’ts, provided a detailed discussion on how to take the “dream” of starting an airline through the commercial launch by outlining a step by step process focused on development of the airline business plan. Additional speakers included Richard A. Asper, Chairman, Aviation Professionals Group (APG), C.A. Sutherland, President, Aviation Professionals Group, and Don Kenny, Senior Vice President, Falcon Insurance Agency. The event, attended by delegates representing approximately a dozen countries, was hosted and sponsored by APG.

“Many people share the dream of starting an airline but few know where to start. Airline Visions is a leader in educating and inspiring individuals on the start-up process. Seminars like this one present delegates with a realistic approach to achieving their dream. Discussion topics present a harsh sense of reality associated with the great challenges of launching such a business. However, delegates quickly learn how to look at such challenges as opportunities resulting in increased knowledge of what it takes to launch an airline,” said Dr. Wensveen.

Media partners for this event included: AirWaves: Global Aviation News; Airliners & Airports Magazine; and BlueSky: Business Aviation News.
