Default Changes at Kitplanes

"Meet the New Boss?Same as the Old Boss?."

It?s with a great deal of pleasure that we?re announcing a change in the Masthead at Kitplanes Magazine. Starting with our October issue, Marc Cook will be taking over as Editor in Chief, while I step into the role Editor at Large! Those who have been around a long time will recall that Marc was EIC previously for about six or seven years. I have been doing the job since I retired from NASA in early 2013 and have decided that it is time to put a little more free time in my schedule and get away from the relentless schedule pressure of getting a magazine out very month. As editor at large, I?ll still be involved with the magazine, still writing columns, doing flight reviews, and still offering up feature articles when I have something to say ? but I won?t be tied to a regular production schedule and will have a lot more free time to spend at the big events to just relax and talk building and flying with folks.

You can read more at https://newsline.kitplanes.com/2019/...ing-the-baton/

Thanks for all the support I?ve received from the VAF community these past six and a half years ? and I look forward to many more ?. but with more fun ?. And less work!

See you at Airventure (but it might not be with one of the RV?s ?.. something a little smaller? and noisier.... )

Paul

Wow! Two outstanding editors. I missed Mark when he left, now I am going to miss Paul. But then I get to welcome Paul back.

Congratulations to you both.

Congratulations on your second retirement. You?ve certainly kept Kitplanes at a very high standard these last years.

Congratulations! Kitplanes is a great magazine, you did a great job and glad to see you?ll still be involved (but on a better schedule!) I?m a subscriber. The magazine is a steady and consistent ambassador for the dream we all share.

I'm only a recent addition to the Kitplanes readership, but congrats on turning over the Editor in Chief position, and enjoy that Subsonex!

Now I just need the magazine to make its way to my new address...

Paul I hadn't realised you were on this forum. I have read Kitplanes for years and it only seems to get better. I really appreciate your editorials. Good common sense from someone who really knows what they are talking about. Thanks and enjoy semi retirement.
