SCAA's mission is to advance and promote aviation related business throughout Southern California; to be proactive in addressing concerns impacting the region's airports, including safety and operations; and promote education on the importance of business aviation to our communities, companies and the general public.
The Southern California Aviation Association was established in December, 2006, as an outgrowth of the North County Community Airports Association and the San Diego Regional Aviation Association. With a heightened awareness that many issues were evolving in Southern California aviation which needed to be addressed, the organization changed its name to better serve this crucial segment of transportation needs in Southern California, as well as the needs of aviation as an industry reaching critical mass, in a new era of global corporate travel.
SCAA is intended to have a voice at the local, state, and federal level, allowing us to be proactive and effective when issues pertinent to the aviation cluster are presented. A major goal of SCAA is to be more in tune especially with what is going on at the regional levels, and therefore have the opportunity and resources to be proactive in affecting the direction of aviation in Southern California, and to weigh in on general economic issues as appropriate. The resources and industry positions of our membership will allow us to achieve many goals in the future when issues are presented that can adversely, or positively, affect general aviation.
SCAA is incorporated as a 501 © 6 organization. Our membership is comprised of corporate, service sector, and non-profit entities, as well as individuals with a strictly aviation focus. We are positioned for rapid growth. We shall address economic development, public policy, workforce development, and educational issues pertinent to the growth and sustainability of the aviation industry, while offering opportunities for networking and fostering strategic alliances within the technology and aviation industries.
