Friday's Fabulous Flyer
Dr. Tim Brady
Last week I attended my first (but not my last) NTAS "National Training Aviation Symposium" What I did not know, was that Dr. Brady started NTAS 30 years ago, bringing industry professionals together with academia. He has impacted our industry in more ways than one. Also last week, Dr. Brady stepped down as Chancellor, but will continue teaching at the University. Such an incredible man.
Full credit for the following passage is given to ERAU, as I pulled Dr. Brady's background off the ERAU website! ERAU is more than just a leading name in the industry. Embry-Riddle is where people like Dr. Brady impart wisdom, and grow our industry.
Dr. Tim Brady:
"With more than 30 years of experience in higher education, administration and teaching, Dr. Tim Brady saw active duty with the U.S. Air Force from 1958 to 1980 as a pilot and was twice decorated with the Distinguished Flying Cross in addition to several air medals.
Before joining Embry-Riddle, he was chairman of the aviation department at Central Missouri State University and dean of Institutional Advancement and External Programs at Parks College of St. Louis University.
Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Brady is the only person to serve as president of both the University Aviation Association and the Aviation Accreditation Board International and led Embry-Riddle in the development of the first Ph.D. in Aviation program in the United States. He has been called on to represent the national collegiate flight training community at crucial times in the evolution of training technologies, education pedagogy and regulatory practice. Through testimony to Congress, participation in FAA aviation rule making committees and outreach to colleagues, he has illuminated the issues surrounding the preparation of first officer aspirants for aviation careers.
Dr. Brady holds a Ph.D. in education from St. Louis University, an M.S. in management from Abilene Christian University and a B.S. in social science from Troy State University" (ERAU, 2017)
Enjoy the journey!
