What is SAS?

Social Aviation Services (or SAS) is a business to business division of Flights Above dedicated to applying the same social media strategy that has led to the tremendous growth and impact of FATPNW and it’s sister regions. SAS is committed to expanding your business’ online social presence, furthering your reach to connect with potential clients and ultimately increasing your revenue.

Flights Above is one of the largest and most impactful aviation social media networks in North America. Created by Brice Van Baren, in 2012, Flights Above The Pacific Northwest (FATPNW) began as a simple Facebook group with the desire to offer pilot’s and aviation enthusiasts a new platform to engage socially and share their passion for flying. Through Brice’s guidance and social media expertise the group has sustained exponential growth and is frequently featured in national aviation news coverage by AOPA, General Aviation News, and other aviation outlets. The brand has expanded to cover North America and now includes 9 regions with over 14,000+ extremely active members.  The engagements on Facebook alone average 800,000 per year, and continue to grow.

Social Aviation Services aims to harness this expertise to help grow the social media reach of our Aviation partner businesses, with the goal of increased customer counts for our partners, and increased awareness of relevant businesses and opportunities for our members. We believe partnering together can help promote and support general aviation businesses and encourage and develop increased participation from the general aviation pilot community.
