Bellingham Aviation Services to Attend 2012 NBAA Convention

Bellingham, Wash., October 10, 2012 - Bellingham Aviation Services (BAS), a leading aviation service organization in the Pacific Northwest, will be exhibiting at the 2012 National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Convention from October 30 to November 1 in Orlando, FL.

“The NBAA Convention provides a great opportunity to promote Bellingham and Whatcom County as ‘The Destination of Choice’ for the Pacific Northwest,” said Vanessa Oliver-Nielsen, President of Bellingham Aviation Services. “Bellingham is bordered with breathtaking views of Mt. Baker in the east and scenic Puget Sound waters in the west.”

The 2012 NBAA Convention provides an opportunity to network with over 25,000 business aviation professionals and interact with key decision makers in the industry including charter operations, private aircraft owners and operators and businesses.

BAS will highlight the beauty of the Pacific Northwest by showcasing both Bellingham and Whatcom County as a destination of choice, and also Bellingham International Airport as the most convenient port-of-entry in the western United States. BAS will demonstrate its own capabilities of fueling services, aircraft repair and maintenance, avionics repair and installation, and flight training. Additionally, BAS provides concierge services including hotel and car reservations, restaurant recommendations, and information regarding local events, activities and shopping.

“This niche market has choices on where to land their aircraft and they often choose to stay clear of the busy Seattle airports. Bellingham International Airport serves as the most convenient port-of-entry to the Pacific Northwest with customs services available onsite,” adds Oliver-Nielsen. “To facilitate hassle-free travel, BAS is available 24 hours a day and provides a full range of aviation support and complimentary concierge services to owners, operators and passengers of private, charter and small carrier aircraft. Once these visitors have discovered the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, they can’t wait to come back. This benefits tourism and small businesses in our local area. ”

Bellingham Aviation Services is a full-service fixed-base operator (FBO) located in Bellingham, Washington - 20 miles south of the Canadian border, 50 miles south of Vancouver, B.C. and 90 miles north of Seattle. BAS offers a wide range of services from fueling and flight instruction, to aircraft maintenance, avionics, retail sales and concierge services. For more information, see
