at JET AVIATION AT PALM BEACH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
La Bella Macchina was held on Thursday, January 21st at the company’s Palm Beach facility. Over 600 guests attended the annual soiree to view stunning displays of business aircraft and Ferrari automobiles. A live and silent auction helped raise over $46,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County.
Held each year in conjunction with the Cavallino Classic, La Bella Macchina (“The Beautiful Machine”) is a fanfare for Ferrari enthusiasts, featuring more than 100 classic and late-model automobiles alongside an array of business aircraft models from many of the world’s leading manufacturers.
Prior to the event, Jet Aviation hosted an aviation career seminar and tour for children who are members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County to educate them about the importance of business aviation and career opportunities within the industry. Last year while on the tour, the children met with Pete Bunce, president & CEO of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), Tom Hendricks, president of the National Air Transportation. They also had the opportunity to visit different OEM static displays and spoke with personnel who work in a variety of positions.
"Jet Aviation is excited to promote business aviation career opportunities for members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County,” said David Paddock, senior vice president and general manager, U.S. Aircraft Services. “Our industry offers a wide range of challenging career paths from pilots to maintenance technicians, and the demand continues to grow with the increasing number of aircraft in the global fleet.”
