Fabian to Join GE Aviation

ARSA Vice President of Regulatory Affairs and Assistant General Counsel Craig Fabian concluded his tenure at Obadal, Filler, MacLeod & Klein (OFMK) to join GE Aviation in Cincinnati, OH. Fabian worked for OFMK from 2006 to 2007 and rejoined the firm in 2009 after serving as director of technical operations for the Air Transport Association. He was previously an attorney in the aerospace practice of another Washington, D.C., law firm.

Before practicing law, Mr. Fabian spent nearly 15 years in the aviation maintenance industry; first as an aircraft mechanic and avionics technician for Northwest Airlines, then as a maintenance control supervisor for US Airways.

"Craig has been an integral part of the OFMK team for five years handling a vast array of technical and legal issues for ARSA and the law firm's clients," ARSA Executive Director Sarah MacLeod said. "We will certainly miss his expertise and presence within our office but wish him the very best as he takes on this exciting, new opportunity at GE Aviation."

Funding Opportunities for Partnerships with Higher Education
One of ARSA's top priorities is workforce development. ARSA therefore provides its membership with opportunities to train the future workers and leaders of the aviation industry.

One way for a repair station to invest in its community and help develop a stronger local workforce is to partner with a local trade school or community college. Two federal grant opportunities are available to fund partnerships with higher education institutions. While both require the school be the named applicant, the funds may be used toward a joint project with a business or local employer.
