The first opportunity for the PNBAA community to engage this year will be in Hillsboro! We are overdue to introduce more Oregonians in business aviation to PNBAA. A relaxed social engagement feels like a great way to do it. Please encourage your peers to join us for a late afternoon beverage and light hors d'oeuvres.
Online registration is FREE, but requested within the next couple of days to support the logistic needs.
Please also take a moment to thank these loyal sponsors who made this event possible:

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.

Introducing Business Aviation at the Northwest Aviation Career Forum
In February NBAA and PNBAA collaborated to attend the Northwest Aviation Career Forum in Puyallup. This day long program was presented in conjunction with the annual general aviation conference. Our diverse representatives presented a panel discussion introducing business aviation to students and transitioning adults predominantly pursing pilot careers.
Thank you NBAA's Kristi Ivey and Brian Koester for leading this initiative with the support of PNBAA members: Justin Brown, Ernesta Corcoran, Scott Jefvert, Brian Miller and Brett Palmiero.
