Former House Speaker Talks Aviation To The Aircraft Electronics Association
Newt Gingrich's high-energy luncheon speech at the 2008 Aircraft Electronic Association annual convention provided more than a little opportunity for some thought-provoking discussion throughout the annual gathering. No matter what you think of the man or his politics, Gingrich was knowledgeable and well-prepared to speak on aviation matters to an aviation-centric audience... who seemed more than interested in what the former House Speaker had to say. Gingrich covered ALL the bases... progress, technology, education, ATC, Airspace, GPS, airports... you name it.
