South Florida's longest serving civic Aviation Organization Since 1927
Dear GMAA Friends,
On behalf of the Greater Miami Aviation Association and our sponsor,
WAYMAN AVIATION, we invite you to our June Dinner.
We are honored to welcome the following speaker:
Yang (Tony) Shen Chinese Airline Pilots Association
Tony graduated from the Civil Aviation University of China and earned his MBA from Duke University. His aviation career started 18 years ago in Florida with Gulfstream International Airlines as a B1900 first-officer. He spent most of his career with China Eastern Airlines, a major Chinese air carrier based in Shanghai. He was an A320 and A330 captain, as well as a training manager. In 2005, he was selected from 2,000+ pilots to fly the historic Shanghai-to-Taipei charter flight after 56 years of separation between mainland China and Taiwan, and received recognition in national headlines.
Tony has dedicated himself to the establishment of China Airline Pilots Association (ChALPA). He is now the IFALPA director and a board member of ChALPA. Tony has also been facilitating the launch of the first direct flight between China and South Florida.
Please join us and bring along a colleague and/or friend!
Cancellations will be accepted only until such time.
The GMAA thanks you for your continued support and looks forward to seeing you at this month's luncheon.
