What a pleasure it was to spend time with Ed Bolen, president and CEO of the NBAA, and General Lloyd “FIG” Newton, former NBAA Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Ed was inducted into the the International Air & Space Hall of Fame Class of 2021. He’s a dear friend and President and CEO of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) in Washington, DC. Ed is also a member of the board of directors of the National Aeronautic Association. Prior to joining NBAA, he was president and CEO of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA).
Ed has also served as a member and chairperson of the Management Advisory Council (MAC) to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and a member of the Commission on the Future of the U.S. Aerospace Industry. I’m very fortunate to have this highly accomplished friendship and enjoyed celebrating yet another milestone in Ed’s stellar career. I speak highly of him in my book.
