Van Tine took the job of CEO at Jeppesen in 2002 and has also has been actively involved in a variety of aviation issues, serving as a past chairman of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association and on the board of the Experimental Aircraft Association, as well as a participant in the Build A Plane program, which lets kids get hands-on aviation experience by building airplanes. Van Tine told Flying he will continue contributing to the aviation community after his retirement.

Crowley has served with Boeing since 1989, beginning as a software engineer. He has held a number of positions with Boeing Commercial Airplanes and Defense and Space engineering. Before becoming vice president of technology development, he was vice president of 787 partnering for success integration in the Boeing Commercial Airplanes supplier management organization.
