SUSAN PARSON - Presenter

Before joining the FAA in May 2004, Susan Parson was a diplomat in the State Department's foreign service with overseas assignments in Panama and Bangladesh.  She decided to pursue a lifelong passion for aviation by starting flight training in 1991, eventually earning ATP and instructor certificates and working part-time at a Leesburg Virginia flight school.

At the FAA, Susan serves as editor-in-chief for the FAA Safety Briefing magazine, FAA team lead for the Airman Certification Standards project, and special assistant to the Flight Standards Service executive director. She has authored nearly 100 General Aviation Safety articles and several online training documents and courses.

An active general aviation pilot, Susan instructs for her Leesburg-based flying club and the Civil Air Patrol, in which she is a member of the National Standards / Evaluation team.



Paul is the chief flight instructor and examiner for a regional airline. He has over 7500 hours of flying experience and holds an ATP certificate with type ratings in the CL-65 and Do-328. He is also active in general aviation. He has been an instructor for 27 years, is a member of NAFI Professional Development Committee, and volunteers for EAA during AirVenture as an on-the-air host for EAA Radio.

Formerly, Paul was an instructor on twenty-three, six-day, 4500-mile IFR cross-country training flights that originated from an airport near Madison, Wisconsin with a route that went to Seattle, Los Angeles, and back to Wisconsin while training approaches at 40 airports along the way. As an experienced aviator and teacher, Paul aims to contribute more to aviation safety by using his training insights to blend accepted best practices between GA and Part 121.
