Business aviation sank its teeth into David Byers and never let go. “I still remember driving the fuel truck around, getting immersed in this world like drinking from a firehose,” he said, recalling his first wide-eyed days working on the line.

Byers never turned back, working his way into a thriving career in global FBO management with widely recognized expertise on ground handling. He’s enjoyed getting to pay his aviation knowledge forward through mentorship and lifelong volunteering with Civil Air Patrol. “I enjoy educating kids, new employees and adults alike on uniqueness and social importance of business aviation,” he said.
