'Queen' Mary Jones
July 26, 2016 - Longtime former EAA employee Mary Jones was crowned “Queen of the Day,” a title that lasts all week, at the Ultralight Runway Tuesday in recognition of her contributions to the ultralight community over the years.
Jones worked for EAA publications for 28 years in many capacities and retired in 2012. Her roles have included editor of EAA Ultralights, Ultralights & Light Plane and Light Plane; editor of EAA Experimenter, editor of EAA Sport Pilot, Editor of Sport Aviation and EAA Director of Publications.
“I was the person on the publications staff that followed the ultralight community and movement,” Jones said. “My job was to champion ultralights on staff to make sure that the ultralight community got publicity. It’s the affordable way for people to get started in flying and it’s just a really fun community.”
