When NATA decided to launch a new website...

The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) also recognized the importance of a clearer identification with the air transport community. The previous domain name – www.nata-online.org (nata.org was not available – it's the National Athletic Trainer's Association) was replaced by the more logical www.nata.aero.

The makeover was part of a strategic move to create a more user-friendly homepage and some sections that are password-protected and accessible only by NATA members.

The new Website includes an expanded Press Room with biographies and pictures of key NATA staff, a NATA fact sheet, statistical information on the industry and archived press releases. A Members Center includes membership application, member directory and list of NATA member services.

"There are literally thousands of business organizations based around Washington DC," commented NATA's Communications Director Dan Kidder. "We needed to ensure that both our website and our domain name were providing the clearest possible signposting for members and, in particular, for visitors such as members of Congress and the media. By adopting the air transport community's own exclusive domain, we made it absolutely clear that if you're interested in aviation, NATA is a prime stop to make."

More about NATA

The National Air Transportation Association (NATA), based close to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in the US, is a public policy group representing the interests of general aviation businesses before the US Congress, federal agencies and state governments. Its 2,000 members own, operate and service aircraft.

Active in all areas of aviation, among other achievements, NATA created the Business Aviation Security Task Force shortly after 9/11 and established the first set of security recommendations issued by the general aviation industry. NATA also created the Airline Services Council, expanding the Association's core base to include businesses that provide a broad range of services, including catering, terminal services, cargo services, maintenance, repair, security and aircraft cleaning.
