Mike joined the retired ranks in 2000 after a collegiate aviation teaching career spanning over 20 years. Much of this time was concurrently served as an active-duty and reserve officer in the U.S. Air Force from which he retired in 1991. Although he held professorships at Ohio State and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Mike's last and longest-tenured academic appointment was with the Department of Aerospace at Middle Tennessee State University.

An ardent believer in institutional outreach and the nurturing of government/industry linkages, he conceived and edited the University Aviation Association's first Collegiate Aviation Directory in 1982 and, in 1983, he went on to serve as the organization's president. His numerous co-curricular involvements include faculty internships with Delta and Northwest Airlines, and a post-doctoral fellowship with the Federal Aviation Administration. Mike is an instrument-rated Commercial Pilot and Certificated Flight/Ground School Instructor . His academic credentials include degrees from the University of Arizona (BA, 1963), the University of Florida (M.Ed., 1969) and Ohio University (Ph.D., 1976). Mike and his wife, Denisha, currently reside in Palm Coast, Florida

LouisSmith

Louis Smith, President of FAPA.aero, is a retired Northwest Airlines captain, completing his career flying the DC-10 on international routes.  Outside of the cockpit, Smith's vision has long been in managing businesses whose primary mission focused on publishing and organizing information that would help current and aspiring commercial pilots succeed in their career--before and after landing the cockpit job. Getting a job in commercial aviation requires more than stick-and-rudder skills, and Smith has spent the past 46 years assisting pilots in reaching their career goals by providing a one-stop shop for the information required to stay on top of this dynamic and complex industry.
