    Remembering Peter Anderson

    On January 27th, the Pacific Northwest lost a true aviation legend. Peter G. Anderson, the nephew of Jim Galvin passed away. He is survived by his wife Sarah, two children and grandchildren. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 2nd 4:00 pm at The Museum of Flight to honor his legacy.

    Peter was an inspiration to many in the aviation industry, following the footsteps of his uncle who started Galvin Flying in 1930. He was extremely active supporting the Seattle general aviation community with his involvement at The Museum of Flight, Raisbeck Aviation High School and PNBAA in its founding years. Peter’s vision continues at Galvin Flight Training, where the passion of aviation flows into future aviators each day. Peter will be missed by many within PNBAA and has left a profound impact on those that knew him well.

    January 2019 News

     

    Welcome to the Board of Directors!

    At the December Member Meeting & Holiday Party the PNBAA membership elected the next class to the board of directors. New board members Jackie Charles-Spears and Scott Helms are joining incumbents Scott Jefvert, Frank Madison and David Warner.

    Jackie is a Senior Flight Coordinator at Nordstrom, Inc. with a wealth of experience bringing the aviation community together. She was recently co-vice chair of Women in Corporate Aviation and previously the co-president of the Pacific Rim Schedulers and Dispatchers Association (PRSDA). PRSDA merged with PNBAA in 2016. Two years ago Jackie was also instrumental connecting the PNBAA philanthropy committee to the Red-Tailed Hawks Flying Club. PNBAA now supports their mission to introduce aviation to under-served youth.

    Scott is an FBO industry veteran and mostly recently joined Kenmore Aero Services as its General Manager in 2017. He has been one of the friendliest connectors at Boeing Field over the years previously working at Landmark and Galvin Flying Services. Scott has experience volunteering in this aviation community also serving on the former PRSDA board of directors. Scott is a bit of an aviation history buff, so exercise caution if he suggests a trivia wager.

    Please share a heartfelt thanks to outgoing directors Kimberly Perkins, Ryan Setting, Wayne Werner and Stacey Woods.These directors, often behind the scenes, strengthened our diverse programs, grass roots advocacy and membership experience.


    Congratulations Members Brian Roger & Danny Yazzolino!

    Brian Roger and Danny Yazzolino have both been awarded 2018 member grants up to $2,500. The board of directors presented three awards last year to members furthering their business aviation career aspirations.The member grants have proven a successful component to PNBAA's annual philanthropy plan. Thank each of YOU for being an annual member, participating and sponsoring the 2018 programs that funded these opportunities.

    Brian is Aerius Management corporate pilot with a vision to pay it forward. He will use the PNBAA grant to help complete his CFI certificate this year and then share some of his time-off teaching the next generation of pilots in the Seattle area. 


    Danny has invested heavily in personal development within the FBO environment at the growing Hillsboro Aviation. The PNBAA grant now provides him a clear path to complete NBAA Professional Development Program courses. Fulfilling those prerequisites he will complete the Certified Aviation Manager exam this year.

    Congratulations Brian and Danny!


    2019 Program & Event Preview

    The PNBAA community will have both familiar and new opportunities to engage in 2019. Strategically the board and committees are improving your experiences with these goals in mind:

    • Provide educational programs that capture more unique topics
    • Provide experiences that encourage more business aviation peers to participate – half will be free
    • Provide participants and sponsors a consistent professional experience with the hire of an Event Planning Coordinator

    Keep an eye out for newsletter announcements and event sites for details. Below is a preview of 2019 programs and events in development.

    We will kick off the year with a Portland Area BizAv Social event on Tuesday, March 12th 4:30 - 6:30 pm. FREE registration and sponsorship opportunities are available on the event site

    Job Opportunity: Event Planning Coordinator 

    PNBAA is planning to hire an Event Planning Coordinator (EPC) to manage the execution of our year-round programs and events. The increasing size and success of these experiences necessitates this important role.

    At a high level, this independent contractor role will be conducing most of the planning and execution of all programs and events. A volunteer committee will provide direction, supplemental support and lead fundraising. It is anticipated the EPC role would require about 750 hours annually. The workload would be distributed in a ramp-up pattern for each program, which are spread throughout the year.

    Tuesday, September 18, 2018

    The Golf Club at Newcastle

    The Golf Committee is knee deep in preparations. Hopefully everyone else is just as excited to engage 300+ business aviation professionals in less than four weeks. Title Sponsor Dassault Falcon Jet is providing proprietary golf balls with anti-hook/slice treatment to tighten up the scores. The 10th place team will receive a special prize in honor of the tournament's 10th anniversary!

    Do you want to play? There are about dozen golfer registrations available now. Sign up! A wait-list will follow and be fulfilled by cancellations/sponsor donations.

    Alternatively, would you rather enjoy a late afternoon miniature golf contest plus partake in the social experience? Register for the "Rusty Putter Miniature Golf contest/19th Hole/Dinner & Awards Ceremony" package for just $75. This is a fun new experience for the rest of us who don't wear golf attire.

    The tournament expansion into both courses has yielded more sponsorship opportunities for every budget. Flight departments are jumping into the mix to demonstrate PNBAA support and expand their team's participation. All organizations please consider joining this experience with a sponsorship package.

    Finally, the Golf Committee is looking for a unique "photo volunteer" to take lively outtake pictures and create the PowerPoint slideshow for dinner. If this role may be of interest, email volunteer leader Kristin Kirschbaum.

    Fifty-plus professionals from the PNBAA community gathered in May for the annual Flight Attendant and Schedulers & Dispatchers joint meeting. Each group attended role-specific interactive sessions. In the afternoon the standing-room crowd convened to hear an inspirational Scott Moore presentation on Value Based Leadership. Industry veterans and newcomers both expressed this program was time well invested. Let's plan to meet again next spring.

    Thank you platinum sponsor STEVIE'S Aviation Catering, along with silver sponsors Aircare International, Air Culinaire Worldwide, Bombardier, DaVinci Inflight Training Institute, Global Aviation, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, LimousinesWorldwide.com and ONEHOPE Wine for leading the industry in supporting this program.


    Welcome John Gale!


    Last month the PNBAA Board of Directors appointed John Gale to fill one of two vacancies. Please join the Board in welcoming John to the PNBAA community! 


    John is Senior Director of Aviation - Nike Flight, leading Nike, Inc's international flight department based in Portland. He brings a diverse operational leadership background in both business aviation and the United States Marine Corp. The Board looks forward to also leveraging his experience as a former board member of the New Jersey Business Aviation Association. Learn more about John's background on the PNBAA Leadership webpage. 


    Scholarship & Grant Awards


    In June the PNBAA Board of Directors awarded two scholarships of $5,000 each to graduating high school students Sameer Romani and W. Hunter Whitlock. These future aviation professionals both attended Raisbeck Aviation High School and The Museum of Flight - Aeronautical Science Pathways program. 


    In the fall Sameer is headed to University of North Dakota to study Aviation Management and continue his flight training. Hunter will be attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Prescott) to earn an Aeronautical Science degree and become a professional pilot. On behalf of PNBAA, congratulations to these students on exploring your exciting aviation future. Welcome to our community!


    The Board also awarded this month a $1,000 grant to Seattle-based Aviation for Humanity, expanding PNBAA's philanthropic reach. These funds will purchase school supplies that will be distributed by business aviation operators to the developing nations.


    Last month the Board made a $2,500 award to the Civil Air Patrol to support their summer youth cadet program. 


    Finally, thank YOU the PNBAA community for attending and sponsoring programs plus renewing annual memberships. The culmination of these activities allow us to pay it forward.


    Aviation Appreciation Month


    Did you know June is Aviation Appreciation month in Washington Alaska proclaimed it in May. Last year Oregon and Idaho also declared their appreciation. Our state leaders are consistently recognizing the jobs, airports, economics and community connectivity aviation provides. The statistics are impressive with hundreds of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in benefit. Arguably Alaskans may have the best claim noting more airplanes per capita than any other state!

    10th Annual Golf Tournament Update

    Wednesday, September 19, 2018

    The Golf Club at Newcastle

    An important update this month. The golfer, sponsor and tournament-day volunteer online registration/request date is now Friday, June 15th. Glad to see you skim this newsletter, reset that reminder. Potential sponsors should definitely be perusing the packages now and building consensus on your top three choices to request on that date.

    There are new experiences planned to make the 10th anniversary special. The first you will notice is the leisurely start of registration at 10:30 am and a 12:00 pm call-to-carts. Yes its an afternoon tournament!

    If you are not a golfer or a local working that day, you can still join the festivities at 4:00 pm. Register for the new Rusty Putter Miniature Golf contest/19th Hole/Dinner & Awards Ceremony package - that experience far exceeds the $75 cost.

    Would you be interested in joining the core organizing committee now to make this tournament an even better experience? Email committee chair Cindy Hales to explore this teamwork and project management opportunity.
