Classic Aero-TV: Phil Boyer 2012 - ‘Just An Aviation Enthusiast’

"Back To The Aviation I Knew..."

ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell had a chance to talk with Phil Boyer who had retired as president of AOPA about four years prior to this conversation. The meeting took place at EAA AirVenture 2012 and Boyer simply considered himself just another aviation enthusiast at the event. Campbell starts off by asking Boyer how he feels about general aviation as a pilot and a user of the system. Boyer’s response is that he feels overall general aviation is getting pretty good service from FBOs and from the FAA.

While Boyer said his recent flying experiences have been good, he admitted that general aviation, on the whole, is down. He said it’s clearly evident that there are less new pilot starts and fewer general aviation hours being flown.

Boyer goes on to discuss the state of the industry and the state of the economy in general and how it affects aviation. This video provides an interesting perspective as we look back and see that some problems are diminishing but many remain the same.
