    On Thursday July 28, 2011, PNBAA held another very successful Maintenance Luncheon. We had just over 50 attendees. The host of the event was Columbia Pacific, or Geoduck Aviation. We want to personally thank Mr. Steve Jones for offering their hangar for this event and hosting this event. Their hospitality was awesome, and they have the newest and one of the nicest hangars at Boeing Field Airport.

    Duncan Aviation sponsored the event. Many thank for Duncan’s generosity to PNBAA, as they are a big supporter of PNBAA. Special thanks should go to Mr. Mike White, who set things up with our caterer to make the Lunchen possible. And as our industry goes, Mike had to repair an aircraft for most of the Luncheon but at least made it before it ended to be greeted with a healthy round of applause for buying lunch.

    Our Featured Speaker was Mr. Gerardo Hueto, Chief Engineer, Aviation System Safety for Boeing Commercial Airplanes here in Seattle. He was outstanding, and he had a very interesting perspective on aviation safety since he works for such a large company with so many aircraft in service all over the world. Some of the statistics that he gave were staggering in comparison to the corporate aviation community. He worked for Alaska Airlines previously, where he started their SMS (Safety Management System) Program. His presentation is attached below in the attached link. We want to send a very special thanks to Gerardo for his time and for doing his presentation at our luncheon. Also, we should recognize the University of Southern California and their Aviation Safety Institute, as Gerardo is an instructor for them. They were the ones that put PNBAA in contact with Gerardo. Thanks Gerardo for doing such an excellent and data filled presentation.
