Its president is Barry Valentine, a former acting administrator of the FAA in the late 1990s, whose resume includes stints as director of the Portland International Jetport from 1987 to 1991 and as a senior vice president for international affairs for the General Aviation Manufacturers Association. He also has represented the U.S. government and industry in numerous international aviation forums and was director of aeronautics for the Maine Department of Transportation from 1983 to 1987, when he worked closely with the FAA to expand and develop the state's biennial airport capital program.

"I've worked in aviation all my life, I'm nuts about airplanes. A lot of that activity took place here in Maine," says Valentine, who returned to the state with his wife to retire. He says he still does some consulting work in Washington, D.C.
Aside from having airports with few close neighbors and unencumbered air space (which makes Maine ideal for flight testing and pilot training), Valentine says Mainers might not realize the reputation they have outside of the state of being hard-working and creative problem-solvers. He recalls being told by an administrator when he started working for the FAA, "'I know how you Mainers are: You show up on time, you work hard … and you wear flannel shirts.' In other parts of the country, that's how we're known."
Valentine agrees with Levesque's assessment of Maine's airports as underutilized resources, citing Brunswick Landing's assets.
"The Navy built some large hangars there," he says. "You'd have to live several lifetimes to recoup your investment if you were a business and tried to build one of them from scratch."
He expects that in the coming year MABA will begin working with allies such as the Maine International Trade Center and the state's transportation and economic and community development departments to better market Maine airports, its work force and existing aviation businesses. A likely initiative that would advance those goals, he says, is having a state pavilion at the National Business Aircraft Association's annual convention in Orlando, Fla., this October.
