Last Saturday, prior to departing Oshkosh, a few of us were treated to the EAA Chapter Breakfast at EAA HQ. Trevor Janz, Manager of Chapters, and several other EAA personnel spoke to us including Jeff Skiles. At the breakfast national awards were given out to Chapters around the country. This year our Chapter took home the award for Best Website! Mark & George accepted the award from Jeff Skiles. Read more HERE.
Jeff Skiles is somewhat of a household name after his landing an Airbus A320 in the Hudson with Captain Sully following after hitting a flock of geese in 2009. Skiles new position puts him at about the number two guy in charge back at HQ.
