Delta Connection Academy has added a vice president with extensive experience in gaining foreign pilot training contracts. Paul Woessner Jr. has also worked with Diamond Aircraft, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, and U.S. Airship Leasing, and was president of Virgin Lightships and Vintage Airways.
“As an FAA commercial pilot, Paul knows what it takes to train and mentor top-notch cadets and he brings a wealth of aviation experience to the academy,” said Delta Connection Academy Marketing Manager Rachel Bragg. “Not only is he skilled at developing innovative flight training programs and winning Fortune 500 contracts, his passion for aviation will be an asset in managing the academy and promoting an unparalleled curriculum and learning environment.”
Prior to joining the DCA team, Woessner was with Boeing Training and Flight Services where he spent four years as a director of flight resources and multi-crew pilot license. He developed Boeing’s MPL program including the curriculum for Chinese, Canadian, and Australian programs, beta tested the programs, and monitored cadet training.
