by the Indian Department of Civil Aviation Technical Center. As Vice
President-Corporate Development and Principal Investigator for a high-tech
consulting firm located in Princeton, NJ, he obtained and managed flight
mechanics contracts issued by NASA and private industry.
    While remaining active as an advisor to NASA and as a flight instructor,

position of Editor and Publisher of Business & Commercial Aviation magazine
and Vice President within McGraw-Hill's Aviation Week Group before being
