Former AOPA CEO Craig Fuller has been named to the board of directors for Redbird Flight Simulations.
“Craig Fuller is the perfect addition to our leadership team, and we look forward to benefiting from his insights and experience,” said Jerry Gregoire, chairman of the board for Redbird Flight Simulations, in a statement. “His leadership at AOPA has put him in touch with every facet of the aviation community. This is vitally important to Redbird, as we reach far beyond building flight-simulation equipment toward more complete training solutions, including the Redhawk training aircraft.”
Fuller, whose tenure as AOPA president ended Sept. 6, now runs his own strategic consulting firm. He has held senior public affairs positions in business, association leadership, and the federal government. He is currently on the board and executive committee of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“No other company has done more innovative work introducing people to aviation and keeping them flying than Redbird,” says Fuller. “Over the past five years, we’ve watched this company grow into a major contributor to the health and well-being of our industry. The opportunity to join the Redbird team to build on this success is a real privilege. I’m thrilled to accept the challenge.”
Fuller remains an active pilot with a few hundred hours being logged this year in a Baron, a Husky, and the AOPA Cessna Caravan and Citation.
