Live and Silent Auctions

NAAA Ag Aviation Expo
December 5–8, 2022 ♦ Knoxville, TN  

The Live Auction at the NAAA Ag Aviation Expo continues to be one of the most popular and successful fundraisers for the Association. When it comes to high-stakes entertainment, the intrigue, drama and excitement of NAAA’s Live Auction is hard to beat, which is why it has become one of the signature events at each convention. The Live Auction on “Convention Tuesday” is very important to NAAA from a fundraising standpoint, so enjoy the reception food and beverages and bring your checkbooks. NAAA also holds a Silent Auction each year. Bidding opens on Tuesday and closes on Wednesday afternoon.
The Live Auction continues to be one of the most popular and financially successful fundraisers for the Association. But NAAA could not accomplish this without the support of our many friends and allies. We are grateful to our Allied Industry, State Associations and aerial applicator supporters. All auction donations, big or small, are greatly appreciated, and NAAA recognizes all donations in Association publications and on the NAAA website. The earlier you come forward, the more exposure you'll get.

The yoke has a realistic full 180° yoke rotation and a solid steel shaft with dual linear ball bearings that provide smooth control with a dampened, self-centering mechanism and no center detent or dead zone. The base includes a Switch Panel with master, alternator, avionics and light switches as well as a 5-position ignition switch. The left and right handles feature one 8-way hat switch, two vertical and two horizontal 2-way rocker switches, three buttons and a push to talk button. The Dual Mounting Solution allows for full use with or without clamps. Two heavy duty clamps made of steel, attach firmly and secure the yoke. For thicker tabletops, a large 3M® Micro-Suction Pad that produces 40lbs of tensile strength can be used for a clamp free solution.

Courses cover all aspects of the PT6 and Air Tractor models (402-802), systems and operational procedures both normal and emergency.

    We also offer custom rotorcraft courses based off the individual operator’s needs. These courses can  focus on emergency procedures, flight into IMC, collision avoidance and low level ops, or any areas of operation that are requested. Operators utilizing aircraft other than the Bell 206B/L series also benefit from the time in the simulator covering rotorcraft specific emergencies and procedures as well.
