TruTrak Announces New Ownership, Leadership
October 23, 2013 - TruTrak Flight Systems, experimental/light sport aircraft autopilot developer, announced that Andrew Barker is its new president/CEO.
Barker has been with the company since its founding in 1999 as well as a partner with founder Jim Younkin for seven years. After more than 50 years working in aviation, Jim has decided to sell his portion of the company to the other existing owners and retire from TruTrak.
Along with this change, a new board of directors has been elected from within the company. Along with existing board members Andrew Barker and Christina Peterson, there are two newly elected members, Carrie Barker and Lucas Massengale, who have been working as part of the management team for many years. The new directors will bring many years of knowledge and experience to the leadership of the company.
"We are very excited about this new direction and the opportunities that will be made available with this new management team," Barker said. "The future of TruTrak is brighter than ever, and we have many new ideas that we are currently pursuing."
TruTrak has designed and manufactured many cutting-edge autopilots and the now standard autopilot servo used in the experimental and LSA market. Learn more at the TruTrak website.
