BACA chairman back for second term

March 21 - Dick Gilbert, chairman of BACA (Baltic Air Charter Association) for the past three years, has been re-elected for another year. Although now retired, his involvement in the aviation industry dates back to 1965.

BACA, established in 1949, claims to be the world's largest network for the air charter market. Members include air charter brokers, airports, airlines, business aircraft operators, handling agents, aviation lawyers and consultants. It offers training and networking opportunities for members, as well as annual awards whilst liaising with aviation and government bodies on matters of concern or interest to its members.

Mr Gilbert (pictured below) says BACA has reached record membership, including a growing number of members based outside the UK and Europe. He claimed: "We continue to attract a wide range of companies and organisations as we all seek to maintain the highest standards in the air charter industry."
