I've been a member of SPT for close to 11 years now and have posted on a variety of topics leveraging my nearly 30 years of experience as a pilot, aircraft owner, S-LSA owner and (all too frequent) avionics upgrader :D I retired from a 35 year career in software development over a year ago and have been searching for what is now termed an 'encore career'. After decompressing for quite awhile, I decided I wanted to do something in aviation that leverages the 'fun' parts of my prior career. I've been a very satisfied and impressed user of iFlyGPS for 6 years and through sheer serendipity connected with the founder of Adventure Pilot/iFlyGPS. So reminiscent of Victor Kiam years ago who bought Remington Razors ("I liked the shaver so much I bought the company!"), I like iFlyGPS so much I joined them as VP of Business Development. It didn't hurt that Adventure Pilot is based 10 minutes from my house :D

I'll still continue to post and lurk as before just wanted full disclosure of my background when I post on navigation GPS topics. That being said, I have always prided myself on putting customers first and working with them to provide the right solution, regardless of the products and service my firm was offering. I expect this to continue.

Thanks Dave for your "full disclosure." I agree iFly GPS is the best app available. I am a long time user and part of the beta team. Brian is the most responsive developer I have ever encountered. To me, he is the heart and soul of AP.

Congratulations on the encore career, Dave! It’s been said that if you do what you love, it isn’t a “job.” I envy you both for having retired, and for finding a role with an organization that supports the pilot community and is one of your passions.

Congratulations, Dave, and welcome back to active forum status. We've missed your posts!
