NEWS: September 2, 2015: Lisa Turner Invited to Join the Homebuilt Aircraft Council (HAC) for EAA
New Homebuilders Appointed to Homebuilt Aircraft Council
September 2, 2015 - EAA welcomes three new volunteers to serve on its Homebuilt Aircraft Council after the retirement of Keith Phillips, Fred Keip, and Joe Gauthier. Vic Syracuse, Lisa Turner, and Paul Dye join existing members Rick Weiss (chairman), Gary Baker, Randy Hooper, and Dave Prizio.
EAA’s Homebuilt Aircraft Council ensures the organization’s continued focus on vital programs of benefit to current and future homebuilders. The council of EAA volunteer leaders represents homebuilders and provides direction for programs, services, and activities that add value for members who are dreaming of, building, buying, and flying homebuilt aircraft.
“We had an amazing number of people apply to serve on the council, which just shows how passionate EAA members are about homebuilding,” said Charlie Becker, EAA director of chapters and communities. “The quality of the applicants made it extremely difficult to choose the final three members. I think everyone will agree that our new members bring some serious knowledge and experience to the table.”
