Phil Boyer's retirement announcement was NOT the best news we've
ever had to report... but there was no arguing with the fact that
Phil deserved a break (and our thanks) after working the front
lines of the GA fight for the better part of two decades. 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...
So... join Aero-TV for one of a series of intriguing interviews
from the grounds of Oshkosh 2010 as Phil tells the ANN gang how
he's enjoying his life post-retirement, do check out other parts of
this series in which Phil provides advice to the newly named EAA
President, Rod Hightower... as well as chats about GA's challenges
for the future, and a really fun chat about one of Phil's greatest
passions-- checking out the latest in aero-gadgets (Phil being one
of the all time great gadget geeks).
We hope you enjoy these chats as much as we did...
