The Wichita Aero Club will host its third annual summit at a luncheon Wednesday, an event that brings together Wichita’s aviation leaders for a panel discussion of the industry.
Panel participants include John O’Leary, with Airbus North America Engineering, Ralph Acs, of Bombardier Learjet, Bill Boisture at Hawker Beechcraft, Jeff Turner, with Spirit AeroSystems, and Mark Paolucci, with Cessna Aircraft.
Fred George, senior editor of Business & Commercial Aviation magazine, will moderate.
A video of the program will be posted to the Wichita Aero Club’s website after the discussion.
Organizers expect about 300 attendees, one of the organization’s largest events.
“The On-Air Summit has traditionally been a huge draw, and this year, it appears, will be no exception,” Dave Franson, executive director, said in a statement. “The chance to hear from the leaders of our major aerospace manufacturers, all in one place and at the same time, obviously creates interest.”
The summit will be held from 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. at the Wichita Airport Hilton ballroom. Cost is $30 for members and $40 for nonmembers. The summit is sponsored by Yingling Aviation and Air Capital Insurance of Wichita.
