Country star Dierks Bentley to speak at NBAA2015
Award-winning singer and songwriter Dierks Bentley, a licensed pilot who values business aircraft and utilizes business aviation, will be a featured speaker Nov. 17 during the Opening General Session at NBAA’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA2015) in Las Vegas, Nev.
Bentley will discuss how his Cirrus SR22T Xi aircraft has helped him in his performing career. The country music star has crisscrossed the country countless times while on tour, and has said that flying his own plane, instead of riding a tour bus, optimizes the efficiency of his travel.
“Dierks Bentley has first-hand knowledge of the utility of business aircraft,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. “We look forward to having this talented musician and pilot at NBAA2015, to detail how the use of an airplane for business has applied to his music career.”
Since 2003, the vocalist and guitarist has recorded eight albums and garnered 13 number-one songs. Bentley has received 11 Grammy nominations and earned official membership in the Grand Ole Opry.
As the most important business aviation event of the year, NBAA2015 offers attendees an unparalleled opportunity to learn about the latest issues affecting the industry. And as the largest gathering of the industry in the world, NBAA2015 is the best place to review the latest business aviation products, technologies and services, while participating in dozens of education sessions and making side-by-side comparisons of the innovative aircraft on static display.
NBAA2015 will be held Nov. 17 to 19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, with two aircraft displays – an indoor one on the exhibit floor of the convention center, and an outdoor display at nearby Henderson Executive Airport.
