mark glassmeyer, Flight outfitters
Ever since he heard his grandfather telling stories of his time in a B-24 during World War II, Mark has been fascinated by aviation. Like many pilots, he took a few lessons as a kid, but had to give up training when a family and career came along. After a 25-year break, Mark earned his Private Pilot certificate and now enjoys flying a Cessna 172 for business and pleasure.
During his flight training, Mark couldn’t find a flight bag that met his needs. After a conversation with his flight instructor, he decided to design one that did, and the result was the Flight Outfitters Lift bag. From that single product he and his team have since built one of the most popular brands in aviation. Each of the bags, kneeboards, and accessories in the Flight Outfitters line is driven by Mark’s enthusiasm for flying and his focus on making “reliable gear for real aviators.”

jeff Johnson, Appareo
Jeff was a pilot long before he worked in the aviation industry. He spent nearly 30 years in the software engineering, telecommunications and network management industries, working on a variety of high tech projects. Throughout, his interest in new technology has been matched only by his interest in aviation. An instrument-rated pilot, he has owned a Mooney for many years and says, “Becoming a pilot is far more than a personal accomplishment - it's becoming part of a close, passionate community of like-minded people.”
In Jeff’s current role at Appareo, he gets to combine his deep knowledge of technology with his love for flying. The company develops intuitive, reliable and affordable products for aviation, from Stratus portable ADS-B receivers to certified avionics. Like many of the pilots at Appareo, Jeff frequently tests new products in his airplane to make sure they work exactly the way pilots expect.
