    WSAA Advocacy Corner

    PNBAA is one of 15 members of the Washington State Aviation Alliance (WSAA) represented by our board member Alan Burnett.

    At the end of April WSAA held its annual meeting and celebrated two wins this year! House Bill 1018 and House Bill 1400 were signed into law by Gov. Jay Inslee. 

    HB 1018 increases the funding cap on a single state airport aid grant from $250,000 to $750,000. HB 1400 authorizes the first-ever Washington State Aviation specialty license plate. New plates should be available to order July 1.


    WSDOT Aviation Director Tristan Atkins Announces Retirement

    PNBAA extends our grateful appreciation to retiring WSDOT Aviation Director Tristan Atkins. For almost six years, Tristan has been instrumental in building relationships within the aviation community as part of the Washington State Aviation Alliance (WSAA) as well as contributing to the growth of the Washington Legislative Aviation Caucus in Olympia. 

    Tristan and his staff have participated in multiple PNBAA events and he has consistently been a strong supporter of business aviation. Under Tristan's guidance, WSDOT Aviation and stakeholders around the state have celebrated multiple successes including the new aviation license plate and the passage of HB 1526, which reallocated aircraft excise tax funds to the state's aviation airport aid grant program. Please join PNBAA in expressing our sincere gratitude to Tristan Atkins and wishing him blue skies and tailwinds.

    Kimberly Perkins Joins Board

    The PNBAA Board of Directors is excited to announce the appointment of Kimberly Perkins as a Director filling a recent vacancy.

    Kimberly has been flying a Global Express and Gulfstream 650 out of Boeing Field since 2013. She holds a Master’s Degree in Political Science with a concentration in International Relations. Concurrent to aviating, she is an adjunct professor at Middle Georgia State University where she teaches International Airline Operations. Additionally, she is the Founder of Aviation for Humanity (www.aviationforhumanity.org), a non-profit that delivers school supplies to students in developing nations.

    Kimberly began her aviation career on the east coast where she received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Aviation: Flight Operations. She followed the traditional path of becoming a flight instructor and then moved on to the airlines. She flew for Air Wisconsin based in Philadelphia, PA until her work took her overseas. Kimberly lived in Lagos, Nigeria for two years and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for one year. Those three years abroad, flying CRJs and Lear 60s throughout Africa and Asia, fueled her passion for humanitarian work and laid the foundation for what would become Aviation for Humanity.

    Kimberly returned to the United States in 2011 to take a position as a training Captain on a Lear 60. A few years later, she moved her family to the Pacific Northwest for a flying position out of Boeing Field in Seattle. In 2015, she was featured in the Women in Aviation magazine for her unique career path. Kimberly is a Seattle fanatic, an aviation enthusiast, and is dedicated to encouraging more women to enter the aviation industry. She is thrilled to become a PNBAA board member and looks forward to contributing to the success of business aviation throughout the Pacific Northwest!

    Washington State Aviation Alliance share - A special license plate recognizing aviation could be a new option for Washington state vehicle owners if a proposal for the plate is approved by the state Legislature.

    The goal of this specialty plate is to highlight the importance of the state’s aviation system, and to raise funds to support aviation and public-use airports in Washington State.

    A minimum of 3,500 signatures are needed before the specialty license plate can be considered by state Legislature. The goal is to obtain these signatures by Jan. 1 in order for the plate to be considered during the 2017 legislative session.

    Supporters of the Washington State Aviation License Plate are encouraged to sign this online petition. The petition allows people to submit a signature and indicate the number of plates they would likely purchase. While these signatures are intended to show anticipated purchases, submitting a signature is not an obligation to buy a plate. The website also includes an image of the proposed plate.
