The Florida Aviation Trades Association (FATA) has received a grant from the Wolf Aviation Fund to help in developing its program, “Beyond the Runway — Why General Aviation Means Business.”
The target audience for the program, which will be held at the FATA Annual Conference, is the non-aviation business community, FATA officials said. Area aviation leaders will be part of a panel discussion to explain why partnering with aviation companies in their community just might be the economic edge their business has been looking for. The breakfast program is scheduled for Wednesday, June 16, at the Renaissance Resort, World Golf Village, St. Augustine, Florida. There is no charge, but RSVP is requested.
“We are hoping that this inaugural program will be the catalyst for more programs throughout Florida,” stated Paula Raeburn, executive director of FATA, who wrote the proposal to secure the grant. “With so many requests for grants this year, we are very fortunate to have been selected for this honor.”
The Wolf Aviation Fund was established in the wills of Alfred L. and Constance C. Wolf to “promote and support the advancement of personal air transportation by seeking and funding the most promising individuals and worthy projects which advance the field of general aviation; by increasing the public’s knowledge of aviation through publications, seminars, and other information media; by informing the aviation and scientific community of the existence and purpose of the fund; and by soliciting and receiving feedback concerning foundation-supported projects.”
