This year at NBAA Schedulers & Distpatchers I met someone who reminded why we all work and love the aviation industry.

I met Tara Ely with Elliott Aviation out of Des Moines, while I was walking the show floor on the first day. I went up to her booth looking for someone else and instead met Tara. When I introduced myself and my colleague and who we were with she couldn’t believe that she was talking to the people who produce airport business magazine. She told me how she reads every issue and highlights important information.

For the six years that I have been in the aviation industry I have never met anyone so excited to be a part of the aviation industry. Sometimes in life you need a reminder why you continue to do what you do; this time my reminder came in the form of Tara Ely. So I hope Tara you are reading this. Thank you.
