Kimberly Perkins Joins Board
The PNBAA Board of Directors is excited to announce the appointment of Kimberly Perkins as a Director filling a recent vacancy.
Kimberly has been flying a Global Express and Gulfstream 650 out of Boeing Field since 2013. She holds a Master’s Degree in Political Science with a concentration in International Relations. Concurrent to aviating, she is an adjunct professor at Middle Georgia State University where she teaches International Airline Operations. Additionally, she is the Founder of Aviation for Humanity (www.aviationforhumanity.org), a non-profit that delivers school supplies to students in developing nations.
Kimberly began her aviation career on the east coast where she received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Aviation: Flight Operations. She followed the traditional path of becoming a flight instructor and then moved on to the airlines. She flew for Air Wisconsin based in Philadelphia, PA until her work took her overseas. Kimberly lived in Lagos, Nigeria for two years and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for one year. Those three years abroad, flying CRJs and Lear 60s throughout Africa and Asia, fueled her passion for humanitarian work and laid the foundation for what would become Aviation for Humanity.
Kimberly returned to the United States in 2011 to take a position as a training Captain on a Lear 60. A few years later, she moved her family to the Pacific Northwest for a flying position out of Boeing Field in Seattle. In 2015, she was featured in the Women in Aviation magazine for her unique career path. Kimberly is a Seattle fanatic, an aviation enthusiast, and is dedicated to encouraging more women to enter the aviation industry. She is thrilled to become a PNBAA board member and looks forward to contributing to the success of business aviation throughout the Pacific Northwest!
