Welcome to BEFA
The Boeing Employees Flying Association (BEFA) is a non-profit
organization affiliated with the Boeing Recreation Council. BEFA
exists for the purpose of allowing eligible persons to have the
use of small aircraft for personal flying or to learn to fly. The
association has a large fleet of small aircraft available to its
members at per-hour costs that are the lowest in the Puget Sound
area. We have a large staff of flight instructors, most of whom
are Boeing employees themselves.
BEFA members flew over 6000 hours in 2012
