The Idaho Aviation Association gives Idaho a general aviation voice, both locally and nationally. Our mission is to:
- represent our members in forums where decisions are made that affect general aviation;
- inform our members about aviation issues;
- work with public and private entities for the preservation, maintenance and enhancement of aviation facilities; and
- promote safety, education and public understanding of general aviation in Idaho.
We invite you to join over 1100 IAA members in this exciting and critical work for the future of aviation in Idaho.

TWO DISTRICTS OPEN NOMINATIONS FOR DIRECTOR
As specified in the Bylaws, Directors serve for 3 year terms. The Directors in Districts 2 and 3 have served for three years and we will be accepting nominations for those positions from December 4th through December 18th. Current directors, Bill Ables (District 2) and John Davis (District 3), have agreed to run again but nominations are open to anyone in a district.
Any current member in a District Two or Three may nominate a candidate for that position and individuals interested in serving may place their own name on the ballot. Names should be emailed to Nadine Burak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Directors play a direct role in IAA policy and decision making. We have enjoyed the luxury of good people in these positions in the past and I hope we can continue to attract people of the same high caliber.
"Pioneers of the Air"
Mark your calendars for Sunday, December 2, 8:30 p.m. to watch "Pioneers of the Air" on Idaho Public Television. It looks to be an informative video about early commercial aviation in Idaho. Here's a LINK to the intro video.
Our own Greg Cobia, District Five Director, was instrumental in saving and refurbishing the DuBois air mail beacon, arrow, and building. He's working on saving other beacons in Idaho and Montana. To help with the project, or for more information contact Greg at 208-785-5006 or email@example.com.
Excerpt from President Andrew George's September Flyline Article:
(We need) The guy or gal who understands what we have here in Idaho and is willing to help preserve it. Understand you do not need to even live here. If you have traveled to Idaho and enjoyed it, you can help. Many of the projects ahead can be done remotely and within the confines and comfort of your own home. Aviation is a small community, so a lot of burden goes to a few. Here are a few current projects that can use some help:
-Design a promotional poster that projects our image, message and benefits
-Scholarship Committee Member(s)
-Contact current and search out new Corporate Sponsors/Discount Providers
I understand that people are busy, so even if you know you can’t make a long-term commitment, that’s ok. If you think you can shave a little time off your plate to help as smaller projects are needed, we would love to know that. For those who may have a bit more time on their hands, many of the local chapters as well as the State Board would greet you with open arms to join us and participate on many levels. Every bit helps, no matter what you can do. Even if you live in Florida and maintain a membership: that is so greatly appreciated! As we grow and gain new members from around the country, we love to receive the input of fresh ideas. The IAA appreciates all that each member can donate, be it time or money, and with your help, every effort will continue to promote, preserve, and protect aviation in Idaho.
If you can help in any way, shape, or form contact IAA Secretary, Nadine Burak at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-861-9056.
