Following Friday's general session at AOPA Expo 2008, ANN spoke with outgoing group president Phil Boyer, about what he thinks is the greatest challenge facing not only pilots, but Americans of all stripes...
There's no denying when most pilots think about the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association... they think of Phil Boyer, the man who has helmed the pilot advocacy organization for the last 18 years. Alas, Phil's time at AOPA headquarters in Frederick, Maryland is nearing its end, and on Saturday, incoming president Craig Fuller was formally introduced to AOPA members, and the media...
Boyer introduced AOPA President-elect Craig Fuller, who graciously said that the opportunity "to take my professional passions, and now put those to work on behalf of something that's been a part of my life for 40 years, general aviation, is frankly a blessing beyond anything I could imagine.
"It's been a wonderful few weeks during this transition, it's been great to be here," Fuller said.
"Thanks to you, as members, for the support you have given the organization, for the personal support you have given me in this last week, and for the chance to work with you over the course of the years ahead in making sure aviation is as exciting looking forward as it has been for all of us in the past."
