Welcome to NVBAA, a member community of over 450 Nevada Aviation, Aerospace, and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) industry, government, military and academia leaders!

At NVBAA we continue to promote STEM Education in Nevada, and our STEM Education programs are now some of the most successful in America. Our 3 after school clubs – Aviation, Robotics, and Math – and year-round internship programs have produced Regional and National Champions, and we are continuing our efforts to reach more youth and more schools across the Great State of Nevada.

NVBAA helps conventions, conferences, and expositions that promote the aviation, aerospace, and UAS industry in Nevada. At the 2016 InterDrone Show in Las Vegas, we showcased our award-winning STEM Education programs at our booth and our Aviation Post 888 Explorers were on-hand to answer any questions and discuss how our after-school and internship programs have helped them learn about, and choose to pursue careers in aviation, aerospace, and UAS.

In our continuing efforts to provide real-world hands-on career education and training, NVBAA applied for and was  approved by the FAA under Section 333 Exemption to operate UAS (drones) for aerial data collection, education, and research.  NVBAA working with its industry partner, GRADD (Global Robot And Drone Deployment), is creating training, and certification workshops for a variety of UAS related technologies, such 3D Aerial Mapping, 3D Modeling, data analysis, and operations related topics such as Part 107, and safe operations of UAS.


Join 27,000 industry professionals for the three most important days of business aviation in the year. Ranked as the sixth largest trade show in the United States, the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) will be held Oct. 10-12, 2017, in Las Vegas, NV, bringing together current and prospective aircraft owners, manufacturers and customers into one meeting place to get critical work accomplished.
