Thumbs up James Clark

I would like to congratulate my high school classmate for being appointed as president of South Carolina State University. What an accomplishment James!!!!! We are very proud of you!!!!!

To keep this RV related......James' RV6 was the first RV that ever landed at 49FD (my backyard airstrip). James also serves as a member of the EAA board I believe.

Default Congratulations, Chatterbox!

Very distinguished stage in a very distinguished career. And to think, I've spent the night in your house (I kinda ran out of daylight coming back from Key West one time, and he felt sorry for me) and had my first Keurig coffee in your kitchen - just like 50 thousand dollar RV rides; that was an expensive cuppa joe

Hope it leaves you plenty of time to build and fly.

I too want to wish my friend James a great big congrats on his appointment. James and I have a long history together, starting almost 8 years ago with a cold contact phone call. We met during the RV1 tour, and he was instrumental in helping put together our sponsorship of Team AeroDynamix.

His knowledge, business sense, personality, and 'can do' attitude will serve SC State very well.
James---congrats my friend----well done!

Default Me too...

Well said, Tom. James first called me in 2011 after I bought the remains of our mutual friend Tony Spicer's RV-3B. Then a couple years later when I started working for GRT, he was relentless in helping me with marketing and product development and making our Team Aerodynamix sponsorship happen. I had no idea he was involved with so many organizations, but he always made time for us.

Congratulations James!! SC State made a great choice!

Congratulations to SC State. They are now in the capable hands of James Clark, a man I have had the pleasure of knowing and flying with for many years. He is a true gentleman, a font of knowledge and limitless abilities. I am proud to count James among the finest of my friends. Well done CB!

I'm sure there's a place on campus for James to land his RV6 and RV8! LOL---
easier commute from Columbia that way.
