Lewis Jordan, who co-founded ValuJet Airlines and its Successor AirTran Airways, will be the featured guest speaker at the regular bi–monthly meeting of the Atlanta Aero Club scheduled for November 29th. Jordan served as Chairman of AirTran until his retirement from active management in 1997 and continued as an active member of the AirTran Board until the company's acquisition by Southwest Airlines in May 2011.

He also served as Vice President of Operations for Flying Tigers, the world’s largest international cargo and military transport airline which is now part of Federal Express.
