Responsibilities also included interfacing with airline leaders and operations level managers, pilots and instructors, as well as serving as a subject matter expert for flight training and contracting training providers ensuring adherence to Boeing standards.

"The opportunity to come on board with a premier flight school was too good to pass up," said Woessner, (pictured, right) who has 30 years of experience in aviation and flight training.  "I am looking forward to working with the outstanding team here at the academy to build on their reputation of excellence and move ahead as a global leader in flight training and pilot provisioning."
