For our last print issue of the year, we’re going to focus on the next generation of GA’s leaders, from CFIs to flight planning entrepreneurs to those who are sharing their passion for aviation in any number of ways. Do you know someone who fits this description? Let us know who they are, what they are doing and why you think they fit the bill.
It’s no secret that aviation is filled with “old” pilots. But, there are a good number of “young” folks making their mark. For example: Chelsea Welch, 30, is a CFI and pilot’s watch marketer; Andy Matthews, 33, is the co-founder of iFlightPlanner and a professional golfer and pilot; Chuck Wiplinger, 33, is third generation leader of Minnesota-based Wipaire, the float manufacturer. There are many others under 40 in our industry.
Help us locate these up-and-coming instructors, manufacturers, marketers, pilots, etc … We’ll turn the spotlight on the Next Generation in the Dec. 20 issue of General Aviation News.
