IAC President Rob Dorsey announced his resignation on Saturday, June 22, after 15 months in office, citing philosophical differences regarding U.S. aerobatic team issues as his primary reason for the resignation.
“We thank Rob for his efforts during his tenure with the IAC and appreciate the hard work and dedication he provided to the world of aerobatic flight,” said Dave Monroe, IAC Vice President and acting President. “We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
Monroe stated that normal operations of the IAC would carry on in an uninterrupted fashion. Initiatives forged during Dorsey’s tenure will also continue, including work with the FAA on aerobatic air space issues; hosting the World Aerobatic Championships in June 2003; sanctioning of local contests, regional series championships and the U.S. Nationals; and efforts to expand IAC’s programs and services.
The IAC Board of Directors will meet on Saturday, June 29, as required by IAC bylaws, to elect a successor who shall hold office until the next membership election in March 2003.
