Classic Aero-TV: AEA President Paula Derks -- Take Back Our Industry

Here's One More Way That The Transformation Of Aviation Can Happen... With Strong Leadership

ANN E-I-C Note, 03.21.13: A year later, this is still one of the best industry addresses we've seen. Listen carefully and tell me that AEA President Derks doesn't have her eyes squarely on the issues that plague our industry and her constituency. If all aero-leadership was this astute, we'd be in FAR better shape. -- Jim Campbell, ANN Editor-In-Chief/CEO

The 2012 AEA Convention and trade show had much to boast about... great news, exciting product unveilings and no end of interesting products and people to feature.

However; one of the most interesting aspects of this year;'s event was the outstanding address given to the membership by AEA President Paula Derks. Leading one of the most technically complex industry associations in the world, Derks argued forcefully for a new attitude for an industry victimized by blundering politics, pointless bureaucracy and a doddering economy by "Taking Back Our Industry."

It was one of the gutsiest and most salient addresses we’ve heard in the GA game, for years. Here are some excerpts to explain why we remain so impressed with the focus and mission of AEA. Founded in 1957, the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) represents more than 1,300 aviation businesses, including repair stations that specialize in maintenance, repair and installation of avionics and electronic systems in general aviation aircraft. AEA membership also includes instruments facilities, manufacturers of avionics equipment, instrument manufacturers, airframe manufacturers, test equipment manufacturers, major distributors, and educational institutions.
