Following Friday's general session at AOPA Expo 2008, ANN spoke
with outgoing group president Phil Boyer, about what he thinks is
the greatest challenge facing not only pilots, but Americans of all
There's no denying when most pilots think about the Aircraft
Owners and Pilots Association... they think of Phil Boyer, the man
who has helmed the pilot advocacy organization for the last 18
years. Alas, Phil's time at AOPA headquarters in Frederick,
Maryland is nearing its end... and on Saturday, incoming president
Craig Fuller was formally introduced to AOPA members, and the
Boyer introduced AOPA President-elect Craig Fuller, who
graciously said that the opportunity "to take my professional
passions, and now put those to work on behalf of something that's
been a part of my life for 40 years, general aviation, is frankly a
blessing beyond anything I could imagine.
"It's been a wonderful few weeks during this transition, it's
been great to be here," Fuller said.
"Thanks to you, as members, for the support you have given the
organization, for the personal support you have given me in this
last week, and for the chance to work with you over the course of
the years ahead in making sure aviation is as exciting looking
forward as it has been for all of us in the past."

Fuller in the coming days.
