Uvalde Flight Center Welcomes Samantha Harlan As New General Manager

Helo And Fixed-Wing Pilot With A Business Background

The Uvalde Flight Center in South Texas is pleased to welcome Samantha Harlan to her new position as General Manager of the Uvalde-based FBO. Ms. Harlan's varied experience as a pilot, FBO office manager and event coordinator will be put to good use in managing the Flight Center and Uvalde's airport operations.

A private pilot with over 200 hours of time in both helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, Samantha is excited about combining her management and public relations skills with her love of aviation. Ms. Harlan attained her pilot's license in 2007, while working at Tomball Jet Center in Houston, TX. Starting her flight certification in helicopters and then adding a fixed-wing rating, she joined a highly select group - less than 1% of all pilots are female helicopter pilots.

Samantha also previously worked at Hi-Tech Aviation, located at David Wayne Hooks Airport (KDWH) in Spring, TX. Other experiences included working as a Consultant and Site Coordinator for Houston's Horseshoe Bay Resort and Buffalo Valley Event Center, where she says the responsibilities of planning, promoting and managing events for sizeable groups put Samantha's education (a BA in Speech Communications and minors in Business Management and Spanish) to good use.

Samantha said she is eager to help expand awareness of aviation opportunities in the South Texas region. She plans to utilize her experience in public relations and event coordination to help Garner Field and the Uvalde Flight Center achieve greater regional visibility in area communities and, of course, in the aviation community.

SkyWay Group Sales and Marketing Officer Gary Buchanan said, "We are delighted Samantha has chosen to lead the Uvalde Flight Center. Her valuable management and public relations background, piloting skills and passion for aviation promise to make her an invaluable asset to the SkyWay Group and the Uvalde community. We look forward to a productive and long-lasting relationship as she helps expand Uvalde's aviation presence and opportunities in the years ahead."
