How BEFA Supports Boeing and the local community
The Boeing Employees Flying Association (BEFA) is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Boeing Recreation Council. BEFA exists for the purpose of allowing eligible persons to have the use of small aircraft for personal flying or to learn to fly. The association has a large fleet of small aircraft available to its members at per-hour costs that are the lowest in the Puget Sound area. We have a large staff of flight instructors, most of whom are Boeing employees themselves.
BEFA members flew 6000+ hours in 2014
