From Your President (March 2019)
Your BEFA Board met on February 21st and reviewed and approved a decision to enter into an aircraft lease for a 2019 Super Cub. This aircraft is in final assembly and we plan on having it on display at our Annual Meeting/Crab Feed scheduled for April 27th.
BEFA has been notified by RNT airport that our request to reacquire the ramp space to the North of our building has been approved by Renton City Council. This is an important step in working towards our goal of a new long term lease at RNT. This adds 24000 square feet of ramp space for us to utilize.
I’m pleased to announce that our RNT School District High School Private Pilots Ground School is in full swing and we have a very proactive group of students who are eager to learn about aviation. You can become a part of this by contributing to our BEFACT Charitable Trust. We hope to have two classes per year.
Our Redbird has been expanded to include a twin engine Piper Seminole configuration. So when you’re tired of winter weather come and get some multi engine simulator time.
So mark your calendar for the Annual Crab Feed and come and see your fellow pilots and get up to speed on what’s going on at BEFA.
