BISMARCK, N.D. – The North Dakota Aeronautics Commission has appointed Kyle Wanner its new director to succeed Larry Taborsky, who resigned earlier this year, to pursue other career goals. Wanner has been the aviation planner for the commission since 2011.
Originally from Mandan, North Dakota, Wanner is a graduate of the University of North Dakota and holds bachelor degrees in Airport Management and Air Traffic Control. He is a private pilot. Before joining the Aeronautics Commission, Wanner worked with the University of North Dakota Aerospace Foundation, Jamestown Regional Airport, and Signature Flight Support.
“We are at a critical stage in the development of much needed aviation infrastructure throughout the state, and are working to continue the integration of Unmanned Systems Aircraft into the National Airspace System,” said Wanner.
“North Dakota has a long history of being a leader in the aviation industry, and I am looking forward to continuing that tradition as we move forward.”
