Jim "Zack" Olzacki was elected as president of EAA Warbirds of America in July of 2020. This special interest community is dedicated to the preservation and safe operations of historic military aircraft owned by civilian individuals and organizations.
Jim's love of flying began when he earned his private pilot's certificate in 1983, followed by complex aircraft and tailwheel endorsements in 1984, and multiengine rating in 1986. He has worked in aviation museum management, and has flown with formation demonstration teams. Olzacki primarily flies a T-34B in the blue-and-white U.S. Navy recruiting paint scheme, but also has time in a T-6 and Stearman, among other aircraft.
He also served as Warbirds of America vice president and commander of EAA Florida Warbird Squadron 24. He and his wife, Lynn, who is also a pilot, reside in Punta Gorda, Florida.
