With only a couple of weeks in pocket, directing the reorganization of the EAA in the wake of the departure of Rod Hightower, ti seems that we can't get enough info from new Boss, Jack Pelton.
Sitting next to a well-placed Stearman on the floor of the NBAA convention, ANN caught up with Jack to get a little more info as Jack adjusted to the realities of heading the evolving organization.
Jack seems comfortable with his new role and is not the least bit intimidated about what lies ahead... and at the same time, seems all to aware that there is some repair work to do before EAA can get past current difficulties and start building a new future. Commuting back and forth between his home in Wichita and the office in Oshkosh, Jack is using GA to be where he needs to be and making sure that nothing gets left unattended.
And he doesn't have a lot of time to waste. In addition to getting EAA back on track, there's this little gathering, each year, called AirVenture, to plan... and you can tell that this weighs heavily on his mind...
