    10th Annual Golf Tournament - Four Week Countdown

    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.

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!

    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.

    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.

H.R. 2997 will not be a part of the FAA reauthorization process. Thus ensuring our current airspace and airport access remains.
