NBAA-BACE Recap: What happened in Vegas?


The 2019 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) was held Oct. 22-24 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and Henderson Executive Airport (KHND) in Las Vegas. The show included an impressive static display of cutting-edge business aircraft, education sessions and more than 1,000 exhibitors, including Phillips 66® Aviation.

Phillips 66 booth visitors had the opportunity to snag a photo with the “King” himself and play the larger-than-life Wing Ding Slot Machine. Attendees couldn’t help falling in love with all the freebies. Three lucky winners took home the daily jackpots. Jerry Christian from Wilson Air Center in Memphis, Tennessee and Erin Knox from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University won Apple Watches. Marli Kok, a corporate flight attendant, won a MacBook.

And once again, Phillips 66 Aviation presented a $22,000 check to the Corporate Angel Network, along with co-sponsors Business & Commercial Aviation Magazine and Safe Flight Instrument Corporation. CAN is the only charitable organization in the U.S. whose sole mission is to help cancer patients access the best treatment centers in the country by arranging free travel on corporate aircraft.

The donation is a part of Phillips 66 Aviation’s sponsorship of the Corporate Angel Award, a unique program that recognizes corporations and their flight departments that have demonstrated outstanding dedication as participants in CAN. The award recognizes four corporate flight departments each year. This year’s Corporate Angel Award recipients are Williams, FedEx, Pfizer, Inc. and NetJets.

CAN Donation


We want to show our “burning love” for the following Phillips 66 branded FBOs that served as co-exhibitors within the booth: Business Jet Center, Fontainebleau Aviation, Tulsair Beechcraft, DuPage Flight Center, Regional Jet Center, Tri-City Aviation, Texas Jet, and Fort Lauderdale Executive Jet Center.
