    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.

    Advocacy Notice

    PNBAA community consider the impact you can have tonight investing two minutes to read and leverage NBAA's Contact Congress campaign opposing a last minute amendment to the FAA Reauthorization bill (H.R. 4). Today an undesirable amendment was added to the bill creating an advisory council that would once again be driven by airline interests. 

    Tomorrow, April 25th the House will consider this bill. It is critical to have Pacific Northwest voices heard now in both the House and Senate halls of Washington DC.

    Member Kimberly Perkins Gives Back - One Backpack at a Time

    This month NBAA highlighted PNBAA Board member Kimberly Perkins' non-profit that leverages business aviation to promote education well beyond our Pacific Northwest borders. Please take a moment to read about Aviation for Humanity endeavors in NBAA's No Plane No Gain newsletter link



    3 Programs in 36 Hours

    Early April was a busy time for the PNBAA community participating in three separate programs within 36 hours: Safety Officer Roundtable, Safety & Security Day and YoPro networking reception.

    The first program was on April 4th with PNBAA and the Boeing Field Safety Officer Roundtable group co-hosting 30+ participants at the 2nd Annual Pacific Northwest Safety Officer Roundtable. The Roundtable meeting and interactive workshop was open to all Safety Officers. A key topic presented was the study underway by the Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) program. It is a collaborative government and industry partnership to discuss traffic flow issues around SEA and BFI. A working group will soon be formed to continue these productive discussions. Additional topics included Flight Risk Assessment tools, SMS buy-in, FOQA programs and changes in the work force.

    The next program was a sold-out 10th annual PNBAA Safety & Security Day that featured six presentations. The diverse audience included five students with aviation career aspirations representing the Civil Air Patrol, Green River College and The Museum of Flight's Aeronautical Science Pathway program. Safety Patron sponsors created memorable experiences with a GulfstreamG280 static display at the Museum of Flight and Kenmore Aero Services donating a seaplane rating/float plane trip. Thank you to all 30 sponsors who helped make both safety programs a success!

    Finally the last program was a new experience for dozens of the regions young professions attending the YoPro social reception. NBAA hosted with PNBAA's support to bring our under-40 community together strengthening their professional networks at a local beer hall. YoPro is a new initiative NBAA is leading and PNBAA is honored to be early supporter.


    Board Projects Preview:  Prospective Member Outreach & Philanthropy

    This year the PNBAA Board is undertaking two new projects that we want to preview this month. Let us know what you think as they develop throughout the year.

    We recognize a large part of the business aviation community is unfamiliar with PNBAA or unsure what it offers them. It is your personal outreach that introduces new faces into our community. In the spirit of facilitating your peer outreach, the Board is developing a committee and infrastructure now to really start leveraging our Facebook and LinkedIn groups. The committee's first endeavor was to create the professional and welcoming brand shown in this newsletter. Stay tuned for more!

    The Board's other 2018 project is reviewing our strategic philanthropy goals with the desired outcome to have more impact on business aviation within the Pacific Northwest. This year the Board is focused on uncovering more opportunities to invest in PNBAA members. An application process is forthcoming that will provide up to three members being awarded a grant up to $2,500 to further pursue career aspirations within business aviation. Start thinking about your personal growth plans that may not be funded by your organization.

    The combined net proceeds from membership dues, event participation and sponsorship are all invested into scholarships and grants. Did you realize in 2017 that investment totaled a record $20,500? Those funds benefited:  two member training grants, three Raisbeck Aviation High School graduates, a Civil Air Patrol summer program and a Red-Tailed Hawks Aviation Camp.

    PNBAA Charity Golf Tournament Update

    Wednesday, September 20, 2017

    The Golf Club at Newcastle

    A few Pro tips from the Golf Committee led by Cindy Hales:

    • Golfer Wait List - Patience is this game. Historically we learn of most registered golfer cancellations several days before tournament. Golfers, keep us apprised if you have a conflict and wish to donate your spot to PNBAA.
    • Cash - Golfers, bring $5 and $20 bills for a mulligan, a record number of raffle prizes, etc. An ATM is in the Clubhouse.
    • Arrival Plan - Between 7:00 - 8:30 am there will be a lot of activities including:  registration, breakfast, Nike Store shopping, a putting contest, thank a sponsor, rile competitors and visit the driving range - whew.
    • Volunteer - An engaging way to socialize and make this a better event, plus enjoy a free lunch.
    • Luncheon tickets - Register online for just $50. Stroll in at your leisure starting with the 19th hole.

    Red-Tailed Hawks Donation

    Proceeds from PNBAA membership dues and sponsored events are dedicated to aviation-related youth and member vocational scholarships - our future. 


    The PNBAA Board was recently introduced to the Red-Tailed Hawks Flying Club (RTH) of Mukilteo, Washington which matches our youth interests. RTH is chartered by the Black Pilots of America, Inc. non-profit. The mission is to introduce under-served and under-represented youths to the world of aviation while engaging their minds in practical applications of STEM and grounding them in aviation history. RTH offers one-day, two-week and year-round programs.
