WAC May Luncheon Will Focus on Avionics, Propulsion

April 17, 2012 12:12pm

The Tuesday, May 22 Wichita Aero Club Luncheon will feature industry experts in avionics and propulsion discussing future developments in both areas. “The technology on the flight deck and inside the nacelles of modern aircraft continues to evolve so quickly it’s tough to keep up,” said Dave Franson, Wichita Aero Club spokesman, “ so we have invited some key figures in those fields to address the latest developments.” The discussion will be moderated by AVIATION INTERNATIONAL NEWS Senior Editor and technology expert Matt Thurber. He’ll be teamed with Phil Straub, Vice President and Managing Director of Garmin’s Aviation product line and an as-yet-to-be-named representative of Honeywell Engines in Phoenix. The luncheon will be held, as usual, in the Grand Ballroom of the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton at Wichita Airport, beginning with a reception at 11:45 AM and lunch at noon. Reservations can be made on-line at the Wichita Aero Club website or by calling 641-5962. Members receive a 25% discount on their lunches.
