OSHBASH!

This is the single event where everyone’s who’s been Twittering, Facebooking, and networking online gets to meet each other in person!

This year will be extra special, as Dan will be hosting a talk with some aviation greats:

Frank Ayers Jr., Ed.D.—Chancellor, Prescott Campus Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Dick Knapinski—Senior Communications Advisor, Experimental Aircraft Association

Dr. Peggy Chabrian—President, Women in Aviation International

Brittney Miculka—Director of Outreach, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association

Dan Johnson—President, Light Aircraft Manufacturers Association

Martha Phillips—President, The Ninety Nines

Kathryn Fraser—Director of Safety & Outreach, General Aviation Manufacturers Association

This year’s talk will be on the very critical subject on the waning trend of pilot certification.
