PNBAA Joint Flight Attendant + S&D Annual Meeting
Thursday May 17, 2018
CB Air Hangar on Boeing Field
This year PNBAA is proud to present a combined annual meeting with Flight Attendants + Schedulers & Dispatchers. The meeting will be a full day starting with specialized presenters, then moving into a combined session in the second half of the day.
It is a great opportunity to learn from and network with colleagues working in different aspects of corporate flight departments. Business aviation is all about teamwork, we are committed to promote and foster these relationships. We see these two groups as excellent working companions with many similar concerns while having very different responsibilities.
The PNBAA event webpage will be revealed in mid-April. Sponsorship opportunities are available now. If you would like additional information, please contact the organizing committee co-chairs Ernesta Corcoran and Stacey Wood.
You Won a Battle for General Aviation!The PNBAA Board of Directors would like to join the general aviation industry chorus thanking you, our members and supporters for opposing "ATC Privatization" tied to H.R. 2997. Over the past year your individual emails and calls to congressional members resonated! H.R. 2997 will not be a part of the FAA reauthorization process. Thus ensuring our current airspace and airport access remains.
