Rod Hightower talks to an attendee of the Salute to Veterans Air Show in Columbia, MO
Long-time pilot and Stearman rebuilder Rod Hightower has been chosen to become the next EAA President. Hightower, who keeps his beautiful Stearman at Creve Coeur Airport in St. Louis County, will bring his expertise in aviation and business management to EAA. He currently is a director of the National Stearman Foundation and has helped organize the annual Stearman National Fly-in. His duties as EAA president will begin September 7, and include the day-to-day operations as well as direction of EAA programs and strategy. I have had the privilege of meeting Rod several times at Creve Coeur Airport and the Salute to Veterans Corporation Air Show in Columbia, MO. Congratulations, Rod, on this great honor!
