Tuesday, December 5th 2017 1:15 pm - 2:00 pm

Concorde Ballroom

Following a career that included 45 combat missions as a United States Air Force A-10 pilot and three Super Bowl championships as a defensive tackle with the Dallas Cowboys, Chad Hennings is uniquely qualified to bring his message of “Living Excellence" to the 2017 ICAS Convention. He is also well-positioned to understand the unique role that air shows play in motivating and inspiring the 12 million people who attend our events each year in North America. During his fast-paced presentation, he will share insights from his experiences as one of the nation’s most decorated college football players as a cadet at the Air Force Academy, Air Force fighter pilot, and professional athlete. He will explain how he has lived that message of excellence throughout his military, athletic and business careers, and how it has impacted his family life, as well. He will discuss how the entire air show community is positioned not just to live excellence as a lifestyle, but to communicate this message to air show audiences throughout the United States and Canada.
