NATA tops up an already experienced board
Curt Castagna is stepping down having completed a second term as NATA chairman. Clive Lowe, Joe Gibney, Jeff Ross, CR Sincock II and Todd Anderson are onboard, bringing with them considerable FBO expertise.

The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) has announced board of directors leadership changes and the election of two new members.

Clive Lowe, executive VP of Atlantic Aviation Services, has been elected as the new board chairman. His home base is in Arlington, Virginia. He will take the helm from Curt Castagna, president and CEO of Aeroplex/Aerolease Group in Long Beach, California, who will continue to serve as immediate past chair on NATA's executive committee.

The new vice-chair is Joe Gibney, who is CEO of TAC Air in Dallas, Texas.

Jeff Ross, president and CEO of Ross Aviation headquartered in Denver, Colorado, was elected to serve an additional term as past chair on NATA's executive committee.

CR Sincock II, president and CEO of Avflight Corporation in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Todd Anderson, COO of Sheltair Aviation in Orlando, Florida, were elected to serve at-large.

“We all owe a debt of gratitude to Curt Castagna as he completes his second term as board chairman,” states NATA president and CEO Timothy Obitts. “As immediate past chair, Curt will continue to drive initiatives that build connections between aviation businesses and their communities. His dedication to seeing the association and its membership thrive despite great odds is commendable. We also thank Scott Owens of McClellan Jet Services for his dedication as he completes his board term.

“CR Sincock and Todd Anderson join our board of directors at a crucial time for our industry. NATA and its membership benefited greatly from the expertise and steady guidance of the board this past year as we faced so many unknowns. We look forward to Clive's leadership as incoming chairman and the addition of CR and Todd as we continue to grow our membership and build on our achievements. Their commitment to the success of NATA and its members is greatly appreciated.”
