The Boeing Employees Flying Association (BEFA) is a different kind of aviation organization. As a non-profit affiliated with Boeing, our mission is to create a community for our members and to make general aviation affordable and accessible—whether you’re just learning to fly, an experienced pilot building time to qualify for an airline job, or using general aviation for fun or to travel.

Our People

BEFA is full of top-notch aviation professionals. Our instructors are made up of engineers, test pilots, career airline pilots, and leaders in the aviation community.

Our Aircraft

BEFA maintains a fleet of over 20 aircraft. From trainers to floatplanes, we have it all!

Our Locations


Both BEFA facilities are under 5 minutes from Boeing’s Renton/Everett plants. Training can happen fluidly from either location.
