The Bremerton Pilots Association membership is comprised of private and corporate pilots, friends of aviation and members of aviation related organizations who are based at Bremerton National Airport or who frequent the facility. The Association has many activities and is actively involved with the airport management and the Port of Bremerton to help ensure the safe and efficient use of the airport. Bremerton National Airport, according to a recent study that was updated this year, contributes approximately $88 million per year and over 531 jobs to the local and state economies so is a HUGE assest to our community.
The Association created and administers a Youth Aviation Scholarship program that assists young adults from 16 to 20 to earn their pilot license and encourage them to seek a career in aviation. The Scholarship provides up to $3,500 to individuals which, along with a similar amount of matching funds provided by the applicant, is typically enough to fund their entire training program. The Port of Bremerton, Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 406 and Avian Flight Center generously contribute funds to the Scholarship. Additional funding is raised at an annual auction as well as other aviation related events throughout the year. Click here to read a Kitsap Sun article about a Scholarship recipient.
The Bremerton Pilots Association is a chapter of the Washington Pilots Association that includes 20 similar chapters throughout the state.
