What corporate PR bullshyte... fire all PR hacks.
Whose dick did THIS guy step on?
Will Pelton move EAA HQ to China?
Actually I'd guess that Hightower firing veteran employees at EAA earlier, pissing off the Poberezzes, and pushing for closer corporate-style revenues and ties to the lying sacks of shyte over at AOPA finally did him in. Odd that Pelton... king of the corporate traitors to America - takes over. Desperation move I guess... and temporary.
PS ~ Did you notice on RAA site how many members want McClellan canned next as a know-nothing former Flying mag reject?
As an EAA member, I complained when Embraer put up a sign at their Airventure 2010 booth that read, "By Invitation Only." I also noted (but didn't complain about) the EAA "VIP" Member chalet on the Flight Line. (I guess if you're willing to take big bucks, for something like that, and are up front about it, it's not as bad as the "Invitation Only" commercial booths--was my thinking.)
My complaint was that despite EAA's philosophy that aviation was open to all, Airventure was turning into an NBAA, or AOPA Summit, where the thickness of your wallet determined where you could step. Per the quote above, Paul Poberezny's intent was always to "welcome all members no matter what they fly, celebrate our volunteers, and treat our employees fairly.”
Glad to see this being realized at the EAA..
I didn't go to Airventure this year, but I'll be back next year with a renewed membership.
