Georgia Business Aviation Association Honored by NBAA

In December, the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) bestowed its highest honor for local and regional business aviation groups upon the Georgia Business Aviation Association (GBAA) at NBAA's 2015 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition.

The accolade is known as the "Recognition of Outstanding Excellence by a Local or Regional Group" award, and was presented to GBAA for its many outstanding attributes, including its culture of mentorship.

GBAA has long been recognized as an organization wholly committed to public education, aviation safety programs, and scholarship distribution. Along with promoting aviation in the local school system, GBAA has hosted an annual Safety Day for its members and guests for the past nine years; the first curriculum of its kind led by a regional business aviation group.

In addition, the GBAA Scholarship Committee awarded more than $40,000 in scholarships in 2015 alone. The organization's generosity has opened up countless opportunities to undergraduate students pursuing jobs in aviation and to those who currently have aviation jobs but dream of furthering their education.

Epps Aviation is proud to be a member of the GBAA, and is grateful to actively contribute to its mission. Our fixed-base operation not only donates to the scholarship fund, but has regularly participated in the Annual GBAA Golf Classic, a time for both sport and community-building among our friends in the plane services industry.

Our congratulations go out to GBAA for its incredible work, and we look forward to seeing more accomplishments in 2016!
