ANN Proudly Introduces Our AirVenture 2007 Staff

Say Hello To Scott Wagner And Dave Ziegler!

With the final days before the official start to EAA AirVenture 2007 counting down all too rapidly... and, not quickly enough... ANN's senior staff is all-too-aware of the Herculean task ahead of us in reporting EVERYTHING that's news at The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration.

Fortunately, this year we'll have some help... and some really GREAT help at that. As we've already told you, Aero-News is bringing its largest staff EVER to AirVenture this year, to not only assist with our print and audio coverage of the greatest (air) show on Earth, but also to help us kick off Aero-TV. (Come to think of it... "Herculean" doesn't begin to cover it...)

Over the next several days, we thought we'd take the time to introduce you to the print stringers, video crews, and senior staffers who will be bringing our readers and listeners all the news that's fit to pixilate, modulate and videotape from Oshkosh this year.

And now, without further adieu...

Scott Wagner

Born into an aviation family, Scott Wagner has been in love with flying machines since before he could say "airplane".  A third-generation aviator, Scott is an instrument rated Private Pilot. In the near future, he hopes to complete work on his Commercial and CFI tickets, and provide instruction in taildraggers and light-sport aircraft. He has assisted in the construction and restoration of several projects, and plans to one day build or restore one of his own. 

When not aviating, Scott is a Special Agent for the US Office of Personnel Management, where his office is located 300 feet BGL (that's right, BELOW ground level) in an old limestone mine that has been converted into office space. His previous careers include broadcasting, information technology security and telecommunications technical support. He lives in Pittsburgh, with his wife, Tina, and daughters Alyssa and Abigail.

Dave Ziegler

Dave Ziegler's fascination with aviation began at age eight, after his first flight in a Piper J-3 Cub. "One of my father’s co-workers generously offered to take me up for my first airplane ride," he says. "It was a truly incredible and life changing experience, and I knew I just had to do this myself one day." Since then, he has become a private pilot, Advanced Ground Instructor, FAA Safety Team Representative, and AOPA Project Pilot mentor. Dave is also the organizer of The New York Pilots Group, a social networking group with a membership of over 150 pilots and aviation enthusiasts.

Currently a Web Systems Manager for a leading-edge electronics design and manufacturing company, Dave also has several years experience in technical writing, technical training, multimedia and Computer-Based Training development, video production, graphics design, and photography. Dave resides in Rockland County, NY with his wife Christine, who continues to be very supportive of his passions. He flies out of Greenwood Lake Airport in West Milford, New Jersey, and plans to pursue an instrument rating and commercial certificate as time permits.

Stay tuned as we introduce more of our stringers and staffers in days to come!
