PNBAA Recognized at NBAA-BACE


PNBAA Board members past and present were honored to be recognized by NBAA at BACE this month. PNBAA was awarded the "Outstanding Excellence by a Local and Regional Group"among our national peers for setting the standard of best practices while contributing to the success of business aviation.

On behalf of the Board, congratulations to the entire PNBAA community on your nationally recognized achievements!

Golf Tournament Scorecard

Rain, what rain? Last month the PNBAA community scoffed at a rain forecast to fill the Golf Club at Newcastle course. We had too much fun together, strengthened professional relationships from the driving range through the 19th hole and supported PNBAA scholarship endeavors. 

Congratulations golfers!
