DAVE FRANSON President 316.681.4491 [protected email address]

Dave Franson is the President of the Wichita Aero Club, which he helped found in 2008. A veteran aviation executive with more than 35 years of experience in the industry, he originally launched Franson Consulting, Inc., specializing in media relations, public affairs and marketing in 1996. A 1971 graduate of Wheaton College in Illinois, he earned a master's degree in Mass Communications from Wichita State University in 1982. His resume includes stints as Director of U.S. Public Affairs for Bombardier Learjet (from 1997-2004), Vice President of Public Relations at Cessna Aircraft Company (1994-1996), VP of Meetings and Membership for the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) (1992-1994), and Vice President of Public Affairs for Allied Signal Aerospace Company (now Honeywell) (1980-1992). He began his aviation career in 1974 in the Cessna PR Department after two years as the Sports Information Director at his alma mater and a year in the same position at Wichita State University. A licensed pilot, he is a native of Michigan. He and his wife, Cindy, moved to Wichita originally in 1973, two weeks after they were married.

"The Wichita Aero Club Dean Humphrey Scholarship will not only honor Dean's memory but is designed to support students who wish to follow his example into communications, administrative or other non-technical roles," said Dave Franson, President of the Wichita Aero Club. ."It especially fitting that it was unveiled at the fourth annual Wichita Aero Club Trophy Gala which honored Cessna Aircraft Company Chairman Emeritus Russ Meyer because Russ and Dean were colleagues and great friends throughout their time together at Cessna."

"Dean was an exceptional communicator...and a valued friend and mentor to me when I worked for him at Cessna in the 1970's," Franson added.
