Join Us at GWBAA

Our mission is to represent and support the business aviation community in the Greater Washington area. We accomplish this through educating our members on issues regarding regulations, safety and technology, by providing an exchange of information through safety seminars, social gatherings, fundraisers and monthly newsletters.

As always, GWBAA welcomes new ideas and new board members – and in particular individuals interested in serving as its Operations and Safety Chair and/or helping to organize the annual safety standdown.  

For information, please contact GWBAA President Greg Kinsella, info@gwbaa.com.
