nino sapone webOn the first day of the new year, I’ll officially be appointed the President of the Northeast Chapter of the American Association of Airport Executives. It will be an exciting day. I’ll be filled with pride and full of energy, ready to assume my duties for a fine organization that I’m honored to be part of. I say to myself, it can’t get any better than that.

Then it happens. I see an arena full of massive machines designed to move snow and destroy ice at will. I envision a convention center filled with people that have come from one side of North America to the other exchanging ideas on snow removal techniques, strategies, and equipment. I see the satisfied faces of attendees that have just learned how to make their airfields safer for every man, woman and child that boards a plane during the winter. I’m immersed in an historic event driven by innovation, wrapped up in celebration, fueled by education. In my minds eye I see everything the 50th International Aviation Snow Symposium can and will be.

History in the making. That is what those of us lucky enough to attend what will surely be the most exciting, the largest, the best Snow Symposium ever, will be part of. History.

Please join me, the event committee, all the volunteers, our sponsors, our friends from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, and the City of Buffalo, as well as the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center, on April 23 – 27, 2016 for the Golden Anniversary of the NEC/AAAE International Aviation Snow Symposium (I.A.S.S.)

The theme of the 50th I.A.S.S. is INNOVATE. CELEBRATE. EDUCATE. The event will feature the latest innovations in state-off-the-art snow removal equipment, and the best ideas regarding winter operations. The atmosphere will be filled with energy, driven by a crowd ready to celebrate being part of history, a crowd inspired to learn all they can about airfield safety. Exchange ideas, share what you’ve learned, expand upon the knowledge you gain from the featured speakers, the classroom teachers, your fellow attendees.

Don’t forget that the I.A.S.S. takes place in a wonderful city full of interesting, entertaining and enjoyable things to see and do. Buffalo has some of the best restaurants, the finest museums and galleries, the most eclectic mix of live music, theatre and performance venues, and some of the most highly rated tourist attractions in the country. There’s a reason this is the 31st time in a row that the I.A.S.S. is being held in Buffalo…Buffalo has it all!

I look forward to seeing you there, when the Northeast Chapter of the American Association of Airport Executives presents the 50th Annual International Aviation Snow Symposium.


Nino Sapone
NEC/AAAE President, as of January 1, 2016

The 50th Anniversary of the International Aviation Snow Symposium is featured in a three-page spread in the current issue of Airport Business magazine. The article, ‘History in the Making…International Aviation Snow Symposium Celebrates 50th Anniversary in 2016’ was written by Kris Marsala, copywriter and project manager for Perfect Landing Media, LLC.

The story covers how the event began a half-century ago, the educational and networking opportunities that will be available at the symposium in April, as well as all the plans in place to make this the largest, most exciting Snow Symposium ever.

To find out more about this historic event, click here to see the article in the online digital version of Airport Business magazine, page 38. 

Airport Business magazine is the most widely circulated business publication that targets professionals who manage airports, airport-based businesses, and corporate flight facilities in North America. Its 18,000+ print and digital subscribers are critical to the safe operation of the North American air transportation system. Published 8 times annually, Airport Business seeks to help these managers run their operations more effectively by sharing case studies of what others are doing successfully and by providing expert analysis, industry news, and product information.


The 49th Annual NEC/AAAE International Aviation Snow Symposium (I.A.S.S.), held April 18-22, 2015 in Buffalo, NY, set a new attendance record for a non-equipment year. The 2015 I.A.S.S. had 492 attendees and 64 exhibitors from across the United States and Canada.

Focused exclusively on airfield snow removal and winter operations, every spring the Snow Symposium provides a forum for the exchange of ideas on snow removal techniques, the latest communications, environmental, personnel trends in the industry, financial considerations, and safety during winter operations.

“The event alternates equipment and non-equipment years, with the equipment years traditionally having much higher attendance than the non-equipment years,” said Joe Guarino, co-chair of the 2015 Snow Symposium. “Due to the fact that we just set attendance records at the 49th, a non-equipment year, and next year is an equipment year and the 50th anniversary of the event, I think it’s safe to say the 2016 Snow Symposium will be the biggest ever!”

The 50th Annual International Aviation Snow Symposium will be April 23 – 27, 2016 in Buffalo, NY. Stay tuned to this website for the latest updates.

In late February, when much of the country was being slammed with constant snowfall and below average temperatures, the Boston area was especially hard hit. ABC affiliate WMUR 9 went behind the scenes at the Manchester - Boston Regional Airport to capture the airport’s crew as they worked around the clock to stay one step ahead of Mother Nature. Carl Braley, Jr., co-chair of the I.A.S.S. and Superintendent of Airport Maintenance at MHT was featured in the story.
