...And AOPA Weighs In
Bolen is no stranger to the GA world, and his selection to head the NBAA brought a positive response from AOPA. AOPA prez Phil Boyer told AVweb that he's worked closely with Bolen for years, and thinks the NBAA made a good choice. "Ed's Capitol Hill staff experience and his background representing the general aviation manufacturers have produced an outstanding and very capable advocate for aviation," Boyer said. "He has built an excellent reputation, and I respect him tremendously. It will be a pleasure to work even closer with him in his new assignment."
