Craig Fuller, the new president of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, has assumed his new role.
His presidency became effective New Year’s day. Fuller replaces Phil Boyer, who retired Dec. 31.
The year will be marked with challenges and opportunities, Fuller said. Work has already begun with the Obama administration. The AOPA has met with the transition team. The top challenges are aviation safety, modernizing the nation’s air traffic control system, long-term financing of aviation infrastructure, aviation security and responding to environmental issues, Fuller said in a statement.
