From the Great Lakes Aviation Conference: 

Lansing, MI February 14, 2014: The Great Lakes Aviation Conference and Expo will be February 14th and 15th at the Lansing Center in downtown Lansing, Michigan. It has been a major attraction for those in the aviation field in the Great Lakes Region for 14 years. The Conference and Expo is designed to provide an interactive and educational event offering over 60 breakout sessions for pilots, maintenance professionals, sport pilots, instructors and students.

The GLIAC has a unique partnership with the FAA, Aviation Business Leaders, Industry Experts and other individuals that all strive to make it a complete and comprehensive event. The FAA has been coordinating many of the special seminars including two days of IA renewals and continuing education.

The outstanding lineup of key note speakers for this year’s event include: General John Borling who spent almost 7 years in a North Vietnamese prison, General Borling is out with a book of poems he wrote and memorized during those years, Taps on the Walls: Poems from the Hanoi Hilton. It's a tribute, as he puts it, to the "power of the unwritten word." Borling, now retired from the Air Force, will join us Friday evening to inspire us all by speaking on the eight virtues of leadership!
