We have had a busy last few months in the North Dakota Aviation Association (NDAA). In August, we held the first annual Fly-ND Summerfest in Washburn, ND. We enjoyed a fun golf tournament at the Painted Woods Golf Course, followed by a wonderful supper and the induction of Bill Beeks (see photo) into the Hall of Fame. Watch for more information on the 2022 Summerfest event to be announced soon!
In October, the NDAA held its second annual Fly-ND Aviation Career Expo in Minot with over 150 students in attendance and 11 scholarships were given out!
At Summerfest, the membership committee announced the first of some new member benefits rolling out. As a member, you will have access to an online membership card on the Wild Plum app. When you show that membership card at participating FBOs, you will be eligible for a fuel discount. We of course couldn’t do this without the help of our awesome participating FBOs! I’m proud to announce the FBOs that have graciously jumped at the opportunity to launch this program. They are Fargo Jet Center, Executive Air Taxi Corporation, Bismarck Aero Center, Minot AvFlight, Overland Aviation, Grand Forks AvFlight, and Western Edge Aviation. Thank you once again to these businesses! Stay tuned for more membership benefits to roll out.
If you are not currently a member of the NDAA, please log on to www.Fly-ND.com and join today! Membership is open to any individual and to businesses as well.
Lastly, mark your calendars for the upcoming 2022 NDAA Fly-ND Conference in Fargo, ND this March.
Take care, Justin
Justin Weninger, Chairman
