GEFA Goals & Objectives
The Golden Empire Flying Association is a 501©3 non-profit organization located in Grass Valley, California. Meetings are held monthly on the third Thursday and are largely social with speakers and educational seminars.
The club's primary goals are to:
- Promote the growth safety and enjoyment of general aviation.
- Support our local Nevada County Airport.
- Increase public awareness of the airport and its importance to the economic well-being of the community.
- Provide aviation scholarships to local youth.
- Provide labor and materials to improve the facilities at the airport.
The AirFest and earlier fly-in's have been GEFA's only annual public awareness and fundraising events.
The objectives for the AirFest have been:
- To provide an opportunity for the general public to share the experience and excitement of aviation firsthand with a variety of major attractions.
- To give businesses an opportunity to benefit with us through advertising and participation.
- To raise money to meet GEFA's primary goals.
