Welcoming David H. Marion As New Technical Content Editor
We are very excited to welcome the newest addition to our editorial team, with the arrival of David H. Marion as Technical Content Editor. This step increases our editorial team to four people. David resides and works in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and is a seasoned A&P and IA with 29 years of experience in aircraft maintenance. He is also a Commercial Pilot with Airplane, Single & Multi-Engine, and Instrument ratings. He has a BA from Colgate University in 1984 and also graduated cum laude from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (DAB) with a BS in Aviation Technology in 1990.
Because of his experience at Antilles Seaplanes, he is a recognized expert on Grumman and McKinnon G-21 series aircraft and he still consults with Goose owners around the world regarding airworthiness issues with their aircraft. More recently he has been Director of Maintenance for a Part 141 flight school and Cessna Pilot Center. His ultimate passion, however, has always been and will always be seaplanes.
For the small team at Seaplanemagazine.com this is a big step forward as Dave’s presence allows us to bring you technical and maintenance related topics written by an experienced expert with excellent writing skills. We worked hard to get him here, as Dave has a unique ability to bring light into some of the most complex technical issues.
As fellow Contributing Editor Sky Terry, Chief Editor Chris Buckner and Publisher Jason Baker, we continue to work without set deadlines and welcome writers who wish to share their stories, seaplane and float-plane related news or even run their own column on Waterflying topics. Would you like to be part of our team? If so, you may reach all of us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
