NBAA Salutes Regional Representative Dean Saucier For 17 Years Of Service

Will Retire At The End Of The Year

The NBAA recently announced that Dean Saucier, Northeast regional representative, will retire from the organization at the end of 2017, after 17 years of service.

Since joining NBAA in 2000 as one of the association’s first regional representatives, Saucier has been at the forefront of advocacy leadership on behalf of business aviation in some of the most challenging areas in the United States, including New York, while effectively covering a large and diverse Northeastern region, which runs from Maine to Pennsylvania.

“Dean has been a passionate business aviation champion and organizer, a supportive member resource and an inspiring leader,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. “Throughout his remarkable career with NBAA, he has tirelessly worked on the industry’s behalf. Dean will be greatly missed, but we wish him and his wife Ginny the best as they begin this exciting new chapter in their lives.”

Saucier’s effectiveness in representing the business aviation community is widely recognized, to cite a few examples: he helped prevent an onerous curfew at Teterboro Airport, he played a key role in the successful fight to keep open Massachusetts’ Hanscom Field and he has been pivotal in the effort to preserve access to Long Island’s East Hampton Airport.

Steve Hadley, NBAA regional programs senior director and Southwest regional representative, agreed with Bolen’s assessment, noting: “Dean has helped advance the industry’s representation at the grassroots level, establishing nearly 20 regional groups, including the Morristown Aviation Association, the Long Island Business Aviation Association, the Connecticut Business Aviation Association and others. Dean also played a key role in the formation of the Massachusetts Aviation Legislative Caucus, the first of its kind in the nation.” According to Hadley, Saucier was involved in the formation of similar caucuses in New York, New Hampshire and Connecticut.

This past September, Saucier was honored with the Massachusetts Aviation Hall of Fame Award, which is presented annually by the Massachusetts Airport Management Association to an individual who exemplifies an outstanding commitment to aviation in the commonwealth. Also, in recognition of his years of service, the association presented Saucier with the NBAA Silk Scarf Award on Dec. 13.

A U.S. Air Force veteran, 7,000-hour ATP pilot (Boeing 737) and former Gulfstream and Beechcraft sales manager, Saucier often flew more than 175 hours a year in his Beechcraft V-35B Bonanza, which is based at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut, in support of his NBAA activities.
