I visited 2023 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) in Las Vegas - the world’s biggest business aviation event.

I toured a Boeing 737-700 BBJ which is on sale with immaculate interiors. Many single-pilot jets are popular features at the show.

In the convention hall, I met with Kevin Larosa, an air-to-air stunt pilot and aerial co-ordinator who showcased his CineJet and explained how air-to-air filming was done in the Top Gun Maverick movie. Tennis champions Andre Agassi and Stefani Graf were the guests of NBAA-BACE keynote. They shared their aviation stories with me.
