On January 17, 2012, Our friends at General Aviation News ran an article in their daily email news blast, The Pulse of Aviation, written by Jamie Beckett about the importance of Sun 'n Fun and announcing the newly formed Polk Aviation Alliance. I was so impressed with the piece, I contacted Jamie & asked him if he would record it as a special assignment piece for SnFRadio. Happily, Jamie said yes.
Jamie Beckett is a CFI and A&P mechanic who stepped into the political arena in an effort to promote and protect GA at his local airport. He also is an owner and contributor to FlightMonkeys.com.
