CABAA is a grassroots organization formed by business aviation professionals for the purpose of offering our members relevant information, training, and networking experiences to enhance the quality and quantity of business aviation operations in the Chicagoland area.
Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters of the 2017/2018 scholarship awards. Each year your donations and proceeds from the CABAA Golf Outing directly support the Cabaa scholarship program. This year we awarded $52,500 in scholarship funds, and over $30,000 to continuing education training awards. These awards included the CABAA Scholarships, two FlightSafety SIC Training Initials, and one FlightSafety Maintenance Training Initial.
The CABAA Scholarship and Mentoring Committee also hosted a new event to present the awards to winners in special setting. Priester Aviation hosted the event and it was well received by the winners and supporters. The committee plans to host this event again for the 2018/2019 awards to present in the same fashion. We are also planning similar award offerings next year and have begun the 2018/2019 planning.
The CABAA Scholarship and Mentoring Committee along with the CABAA Education Foundation works very hard to promote the CABAA Awards, but extra word of mouth promotion is always a big help. Many of our winners are doing fantastic things in business aviation and some are still breaking into our industry. Please look out for them at CABAA events as they could be a great addition to your department in the not so distant future. If you know anyone who would like to apply next year, applications will become available in January and they can apply at CABAA.COM.

CABAA Mentoring Efforts Confront Looming Pilot Shortage
CABAA Continues Annual Scholarship and Mentoring Event
This month CABAA continues the tradition of hosting its annual Scholarship and Mentoring event in partnership with Lewis University. As Business Aviation considers pilot shortages, CABAA is being more intentional than ever about identifying, developing and encouraging the next generation of Business Aviation superstars. One meeting, one person, one conversation can make a significant impact.
Take Mark Jackson, Director of the Boeing Executive Flight Operations, for example. Through Mark’s role at CABAA, his company has availed tours of both their corporate hangar in Gary, IN and the Seattle-based Boeing Field Manufacturing facility to Lewis University Students. Generous gestures such as this from a company such as Boeing land as prominent signals to students about opportunities and adventures available in Business Aviation.
CABAA Golf Classic Supports Aviation Scholarship Fund
As part of CABAA's continuous support and development of the Chicago Area Business Aviation community, every year we host the Golf Classic. Proceeds from the event go towards our aviation scholarship program; it is through this event that we have been able to fund 11 scholarships in the totalling approximately $50,000. Eight $7,500 scholarships, Maintenance Rating and a Flight Safety Pilot Rating.
CABAA has given high priority to supporting these education programs. The future success of business aviation depends on the quality of the people who enter our industry; it is therefore critical that we attract the best and the brightest. Our goal is the make each young aviation enthusiast aware of all the opportunities business aviation has to offer, how rewarding a career it can be, and to secure the continuous growth of our industry.
