In This Installment of Access the ExpertsScott Tarry, Ph.D., UNO Aviation Institute Director, answers the question: “What impact has COVID-19 had on airports across the state of Nebraska?”
In August, Tarry joined a select group of Nebraska experts in providing leadership and guidance to the state’s airports and aviation agencies when Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts named him to the Nebraska Aeronautics Commission. Commissioners serve five-year terms alongside four other members to generally make decisions regarding public funding and planning for state airports and hiring pilots for state agencies.
Tarry is also a Distinguished Professor of Aviation within UNO’s Aviation Institute and director of the NASA NebraskaSpace Grant Consortium, as well as the NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).
