• Redbird Appoints Craig Fuller As Chairman Of The Board

    News: Redbird appoints Craig Fuller as new chairman of the board.

    Founder and largest shareholder, Jerry Gregoire, to focus full-time on design and strategy.

    Austin, TX (October 11, 2013) - "Soon after starting Redbird Flight Simulations eight years ago, we realized that achieving our vision would take us far beyond engineering simulators and software development," said Redbird Flight Simulation's CEO Todd Willinger. "That's why we're thrilled to announce Craig Fuller as the new Chairman of the Board while our founder, Jerry Gregoire, will focus on expansion strategies, research, and new product development. This addition to our leadership team is exactly what we need to continue and manage our rapid growth."

    Jerry Gregoire explained, "For those of us in love with the technology, success is a kind of a trap. The more success you have, the bigger your company gets, the less time you have to touch the technology. To succeed in this environment, we need to constantly recruit top-flight leaders with experience and skills beyond the strictly technical. Craig's combination of aviation and business savvy makes him the ideal choice to insure our continued success."

    Craig Fuller added: "No one individual has done more innovative work introducing people to aviation and keeping them flying using simulation than Jerry Gregoire. I can't wait to see what Redbird comes up with next. This opportunity to join leadership team to build on Redbird's remarkable success, while charting a course for the future is a real privilege. I'm thrilled to accept the challenge."

    The announcement of Fuller's new role came after a regular Redbird Board meeting held in Fort Worth, Texas, where visitors to AOPA Summit are experiencing Redbird simulators and interactive flight scenarios. Fuller will be presenting a keynote address at Redbird's Migration Flight Training Conference at the end of the month.

    Gregoire says he'll remain actively involved in day-to-day operations and the Board, even though the title on his door will change. As Gregoire pilots his airplane regularly on Redbird business, he'll receive the title "Chief Pilot."

    "Honestly," says Gregoire, "that's the job I've wanted all along."
