    On the first of January we will initiate the 2019 dues renewal process.  You will each receive an emailed notice indicating the amount of your dues.  Payment can be made online (preferred) or by check.  Specific instructions are in the notice.  In order for us to get ready, it will be very helpful if you advise us of any membership changes you may be aware of.  If we can find out about changes before we start he process, it will go much more smoothly.  If you know of departed members or potential  new members, please let us know.  You can send an email to membership@wama.us .

    The Washington State Department of Transportation Aviation Division initiated an update to the Washington Aviation Economic Impact Study (AEIS) starting in October.

    This study, last updated in 2012, provides critical information on the value of our state's aviation system.  It will calculate and document the economic contributions airports make to local communities, regions, and the state.  Analyses will identify off-airport businesses and industries who use and depend on the airports.  It is widely used throughout the state to communicate aviation's benefits for citizens of Washington state.

    Each public-use airport in the state will receive the results to share with their stakeholders about the airport's value and contributions to the community.

    The consultant team consists of Kimley-Horn, Economic Development Research (EDR) Group, WSP USA, and PRR.  All have reached out to airports to request information to facilitate the economic impact analyses.

    The work involved to complete the study finalizes in February 2020.  The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) funded this study with a grant, with some supporting funds from WSDOT.

    The Washington State Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Federal Aviation Administration, is conducting a Disparity Study regarding FAA grants awarded to Washington State Airports.  This study is conducted to ensure that disadvantaged businesses have equal access to contracting opportunities and that the current program remains legally defensible and administratively successful.  This study is independent of the WSDOT study that was released early 2017, and the Washington State study that is currently being conducted.

    The dates are:

    Seattle - November 26-27

    Bellingham - November 28-29

    As of April 1st, the new phone number for the FAA 24/7 accident hotline will be 206-231-2099.  The number for the media and public to call will be 206-231-2089. The numbers are changing because they are moving to the new FAA building. The previous number of 425-227-1999 will remain active with a message instructing callers to call the new number.
