“This past year, our scholarship program expanded to recognize three individuals pursuing their careers in aviation; the golf tournament was another resounding success; and members consistently give us very positive feedback on things like our Safety Day and networking events,” said Grant Wright, founding board member and immediate past chair. “The year ahead is exciting as we build on these things and SCAA continues to grow.”
SCAA’s mission is to advance and promote aviation-related business throughout Southern California; to be proactive in addressing concerns impacting the region’s airports, including safety and operations; and promote education on the importance of business aviation to communities, companies, and the public.
With growth, Wright noted that there will be a second golf tournament added in the north region this year to better meet members’ needs there. With membership comprised primarily of business aircraft owners, operators, manufacturers and service providers, members now exceed more than 200 from north of Los Angeles south through San Diego to the Mexico border.
