Bruce Holmes and Small Aircraft Transportation

Esther Dyson photographed Bruce Homes in April of 2007. Bruce was a speaker at Esther's Flight School. Since I did not know who he was, I looked him up. Here is what I found:


- Presenter Bio for Streamcenter (provides on demand webcasts of conference presentations)
- Bio for National Academies (The National Academies perform an unparalleled public service by bringing together committees of experts in all areas of scientific and technological endeavor. These experts serve pro bono to address critical national issues and give advice to the federal government and the public.)
- Bio from Advanced Planning Office, NASA
