The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) today announced a new partnership with Lyndse F. Costabile, president of FunD Av Consulting, LLC, to grow and support the association’s Leadership Council ¬– a group of individuals and businesses, which works together with NBAA to foster an environment that allows business aviation to thrive in the United States and around the world.
“NBAA’s Leadership Council is not only advocating for business aviation today, it’s become key to the organization’s work to ensure that business aviation is strong five, 10 and 25 years from now,” said Costabile. “Having previously participated on the council as a member, I am honored to have the opportunity to support its growth and mission.”
For more than 15 years, Costabile has served in various capacities focused on securing capital, major gifts and corporate partnerships. Prior to establishing her current firm, she led and helped execute a global solo flight for STEM and aviation outreach, under Dreams Soar, Inc., an initiative that enjoyed NBAA’s support and advocacy.
For more than six years, she held the role as director of corporate relations and development with support to government relations for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). In this position, she worked to foster relationships with aviation and aerospace companies, and to advocate on behalf of the industry in Tallahassee, FL, and Washington, DC. Costabile was actively involved with NBAA, responsible for supporting students’ presence at association events, and ERAU’s role with the Leadership Council.
Costabile is also involved in Women in Aviation International, Women in Corporate Aviation, and previously served on the board of directors for the Florida Aviation Business Association (FABA).
Costabile received a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Slippery Rock University, earned a non-profit management certificate from the University of North Florida and completed graduate coursework at Embry-Riddle Worldwide.
“We look forward to working with Lyndse to grow the council and continue supporting its important mission to positively shape the industry’s destiny, today and in the years to come,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen. Learn more about the NBAA Leadership Council.
