David St. George was appointed Executive Director by the SAFE board of directors at the Oshkosh annual board meeting on August 25th, 2018. David is a charter SAFE member and served SAFE for three years as board chairperson. David learned to fly in 1970 with the Piper “Blue Skies” program at Flanders Valley Airport (now long gone). After earning all his ratings and running his own printing business, he managed a 141 flight school for 25 years in Upstate NY (how else do you accumulate 8K hours of dual in a C-152 and 46K landings?). Part of this involved creating an affiliated 2-year college aviation program. This flight school won the first ever AOPA Flight Training Excellence Award.
