Honorary Chair Harrison Ford and Textron Aviation CEO Scott Ernest Visit Exploration of Flight

September 1, 2016: Following a meeting in Oshkosh, Wingspan Honorary Chairs Harrison Ford and Governor John Hickenlooper helped Wings host Textron Aviation CEO Scott Ernest for a site tour and meeting to forge a partnership between Wings and one of aviation’s leading aircraft companies.  Scott Ernest was impressed with our plans and pledged support for Wings’ plans.  With aircraft brands like Cessna, Beechcraft, Hawker and Bell Helicopters, Textron Aviation’s leadership support says a lot about Exploration of Flight as a focal point to inspire and educate a new generation of aviators.
