The FAA has a new national air show coordinator. Mike Umstead, who has served in that position since May of 2011, is moving to a new assignment. Sue Gardner will replace him and work from her office at the Great Lakes Regional office in Chicago (2300 E. Devon Ave., Des Plaines, Illinois 60558, office 847-294-7970).
Sue’s assignment as national air show coordinator is a homecoming of sorts. She served in that position from 2000 to 2005. Along with Transport Canada’s Wayne Harper and former Snowbird boss Darryl Shyiak, Sue was instrumental in working to harmonize U.S. and Canadian air show guidance.
