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.
The Boeing LTP or BEFA office no longer handles the ground school enrollment, though the class is still taught in the Renton Airport BEFA facility classroom. (See Renton Boeing facility map, grid B-52). Enrollment is now through Renton Technical College. 17 student maximum, $425 includes all 3 books and associated supplies. Class though is now open to the general public too. The Boeing LTP program does, at the time of this article, pay for the Boeing employee's course cost, with a passing grade of "C" or better.
