With rich history at our airfield and within our organization, the WAA will be highlighting members throughout the year. These individuals have various backgrounds, but have seen the many colorful cycles of aviation throughout the years. Art Hibler, Senior Aircraft Technician at JP Morgan Chase, has certainly witnessed the growth of the industry over his 43 year career.
As our first person of interest in this new section of our newsletter, the board felt that Art exhibits the many wonderful traits that have kept this airport thriving over the years. Starting his career in 1973 at Combustion Engineering located at Westchester County Airport, he has continued here at KHPN throughout his entire career and has seen the "airport grow from a quieter facility to quite a sophisticated airport."
As a of graduate of Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and a U.S. Veteran, Art has worked on many aircraft from Sabreliners to Gulfstreams. Retiring in March from JP Morgan Chase after 11 years with the company, he stated the following for future maintenance professionals: "Hone up on your computer skills and avionics training. The more you understand computers, the more successful your career will be." The WAA wishes Art congratulations on his retirement. We appreciate the hard work and dedication to Westchester County Airport over the many years!
