Foundation Happenings
Thank you to Jetran International for their support and recognition of the ISTAT Foundation at the Jetran Golf Tournament that took place in Horseshoe Bay, Texas, on 28 October. Their sponsorship and corporate donation raised $75,000 to support the Foundation’s mission of providing funds for scholarships, educational programs and grants to qualified individuals and institutions that promote the advancement of commercial aviation and humanitarianism. If you are interested in helping us raise money for the Foundation, we’d love to hear from you. Email us at
The ISTAT Internship Portal will open shortly, and we would like to invite all ISTAT member companies to post their summer or graduate internship positions once they're open to ensure interest from the best candidates.
The Foundation’s Internship Program acts as an intermediary between ISTAT member companies and students seeking aviation internships. Through the use of our web portal, qualified students and employers are able to match the right skills, background and interests with corporate internships. Placed interns who qualify will receive a stipend from the Foundation to cover housing and travel expenses of up to $2,500. Questions? Contact
The Ambassador Program initiative was created to streamline university outreach and provide cohesiveness among Foundation initiatives. Ambassadors are ISTAT members that build 'client' relationships with universities via phone calls, email correspondence and in-person visits. To learn more, please contact Kristen Chmielewski at

The incredible cost of acquiring engines has left airline companies almost dependent upon leasing, financing or borrowing to acquire those engines. Therefore, lease and loan agreements have already become customary between airline companies and engine lessors or financiers.

Daily Mail Maintaining "liberal access" to European aviation markets will be a "top priority" when the UK negotiates its exit from the EU, the Government and UK airlines have said. Aviation experts fear that flights by UK carriers could be grounded if the country withdraws from the single market for aviation as part of Brexit. The agreement, created in the 1990s, means there are no commercial restrictions for airlines flying within the EU.
AVweb Like everything else surrounding the future Donald Trump presidency, the predicted impact on aviation is as varied and as, well, unpredictable as the campaign that led the country to this point. Depending on who is being asked, the predictions range from doom and gloom, through cautious optimism to somewhat less cautious optimism. AVweb didn’t find any jubilation among the dozens of aviation reaction stories but the overall theme seemed to reflect a generally positive response with a healthy dose of wait-and-see.
Xinhuanet Business aviation in China is "moving beyond infancy" as the greater aviation market continues to flourish, said the president of the U.S. National Business Aviation Association (NBAA).
