Earlier this year, the board elected Ben Coleman to join PAMA leadership.
Mr. Coleman is a former National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Air Safety Investigator and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Air Safety Inspector. He is a seaplane/commercial multi-engine instrument rated pilot with thousands of hours flight experience. He is a certificated mechanic with inspection authorization, and a senior parachute rigger.
Ben served as a Safety Officer for a helicopter diplomatic security detail in Iraq for the Department of State “Airwing”. Having represented several international aircraft manufacturers and ISR platforms as technical advisor and demonstration pilot, he is well versed in international affairs.
Ben is the creator and anchor host for an aerospace safety televised talk-show called “Plane Time” and feels media/advertising is a key component to our aerospace maintenance safety message. During his spare time he is restoring a 1941 Interstate ‘Cadet’ aircraft to be used for ‘tailwheel’ endorsements.
The board thanks Mr. Coleman for committing the time and resources necessary and look forward to his service. See a directory of all our volunteer leaders at www.pama.org/leadership.
