The Greater Washington Business Aviation Association, also known as GWBAA, is a professional association that advances the safety and education of pilots, maintenance technicians, management, schedulers and dispatchers and ground support.
Founded in 2006 and based at Ronald Reagan National Airport, GWBAA membership provides opportunities for ongoing learning and professional networking. The organization promotes the public welfare by educating members and industry about issues concerning aircraft maintenance and management operations. Our mission is to represent and support the business aviation community in the Greater Washington area. We accomplish this through educating our members on issues regarding regulations, safety and technology, by providing an exchange of information through safety seminars, social gatherings, fundraisers and monthly newsletters.
As always, GWBAA welcomes new ideas and new board members – and in particular individuals interested in serving as its Operations and Safety Chair and/or helping to organize the annual safety standdown.
For information, please contact GWBAA President Paige Kroner, email@example.com.
