Saying he wants to stay ahead of change, “…to make things happen rather than wonder what happened,” Bob Stangarone has resigned as vice president of communications at Cessna Aircraft. Stangarone was, as “Aviation Week” noted today, popular with the media who cover Cessna for his straight, fast, and honest answers. He worked with fromer Cessna CEO Jack Pelton at Fairchild Dornier–who brought him to Cessna–and also worked with Sikorsky, Pratt & Whitney, and Safire Aircraft. He maintains a home with his wife in Washington, D.C., and yesterday he returned from his Wichita commute for good. It is unlikely his talents will be idle long, as he plans the next step.
