The Pacific Northwest Business Aviation Association (PNBAA) was first established in the late 1990’s. The organization was made up of business aircraft and cargo operators, flight schools, and other general aviation interests around the Seattle area. Much like the PNBAA of today, it was established largely to create a networking platform for its members and to serve as a vehicle to facilitate information sharing. After just two years of the organization trying to gain traction, efforts were suspended.
In 2004 with the vision of Gene Clow and Richard Keltner, help from NBAA and others from the former organization, PNBAA re-emerged. The revitalized PNBAA focused solely on business aircraft operators and those whose support business aviation in this region. In 2016 the Pacific Rim Schedulers & Dispatchers Association (PRSDA) and Pacific Northwest Corporate Flight Attendant Association (PNCFAA) merged with PNBAA to better represent the collective interests.
PNBAA is a non-profit 501(c)(6) organization. Proceeds from all activities are dedicated to aviation related youth and member vocational scholarships – our future. Today thanks to the efforts of 300+ members, scores of volunteers and hundreds of additional supporters PNBAA is thriving.
