GA's Most Effective Leader Offers Advice For The Future
We had a good time with a wide-ranging interview with Phil Boyer at Oshkosh 2010 and began to realize just how much we missed seeing him at the helm of that organization. To those of us who watched aviation work its way through several decades of various trials and tribulations, Phil Boyer proved himself to be the real deal... a solid leader with some serious smarts and a true passion for the world of aviation. When he decided to retire after nearly two decades of challenging leadership, we all felt poorer for the loss of his participation but could not deny the that the guy deserved to retire and enjoy his life the way that he wanted... free of the pressures that he lived 24/7 for all those years.
Still; when he wants to speak up, even after nearly two years absence from his leadership of the AOPA (which hasn't been the same since and seems to be drifting inexorably 'off-mission'), we're more than willing to drop everything and listen... and when he wants to provide thoughtful advice for a guy who was (at that time) about to take on what has to be one of the most challenging leadership transitions in the sport and general aviation business, we are ALL ears.
So... join Aero-TV for the last (for now) of a series of intriguing interviews from the grounds of Oshkosh 2010 as Phil some insight into GA's challenges for the future. Do check out other parts of this series in which Phil provides advice to the newly named EAA President, Rod Hightower..., and chats about the latest in aero-gadgets (Phil being one of the all time great gadget geeks) as well as how he's enjoying his life post-retirement. We hope you enjoy these chats as much as we did...
