Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association
Aubrey Gladstone serves as CEO of Gladstone Consulting, Inc., Boca Raton, Florida, firm that offers consulting services in a range of industries, including aerospace, healthcare, and finance. Also a commercial pilot, Aubrey Gladstone has for many years been affiliated with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA).
AOPA represents hundreds of thousands of pilots across 75 nations. As the world’s largest aviation community, AOPA strives to expand opportunities for pilots and protect their rights in general aviation.
Since December of 2016, AOPA has been attempting to work with the FAA in order to mitigate delays and flight restrictions at the Palm Beach County Airport. This important airport is near President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, which he has visited frequently since the election. Each time Mr. Trump weekends in Florida, it results in a temporary closure of the airport and other disruptions.
These disruptions represent a significant economic threat to the airport and the surrounding community. The Palm Beach County Airport employs 250 people and contributes $27 million to the local economy each year. A presidential Mar-a-Lago visit can halt 200 aircraft operations per day and over a recent three-day weekend created losses of $30,000.
AOPA is continuing to seek support from the FAA, as well as from Florida legislators, in order to establish provisions for limited flight activities during presidential visits.
Aubrey Gladstone serves as CEO of Gladstone Consulting, Inc., a firm that has handled business workouts totaling over $100 million. Holding an engineering degree and an MBA, Aubrey Gladstone is a proponent of taking time off to gain work experience between undergraduate and graduate studies.
While some students choose to proceed directly to graduate school following recipient of their undergraduate degrees, others find value in pausing their formal education to gain work experience and perspective. Consider the following benefits of the latter approach:
– Improved job prospects. In many professions, employers place a great deal of emphasis on real-world experience. Taking some time between undergraduate studies and graduate school can allow students to build stronger resumes that will benefit them when they begin their careers.
– Clarified career path. After spending a few years working, many people come away with a better sense of what they would like to study in graduate school. This sense of direction is especially helpful in disciplines with many sub-specialties.
– Strengthened/conextual learning ability: Real-world experience often helps students absorb classroom material better. For many, it is easier to comprehend complex ideas if they can relate to actual experiences.

Journal to Normal
Aubrey Gladstone serves as the president of Gladstone Consulting, Inc., a problem resolution company specializing in aerospace, transportation, logistics, health care, employee leasing, and finance. In his time away from work, Aubrey Gladstone is a staunch supporter of Journey to Normal.
Journey to Normal is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the stories of women veterans returning from war through its upcoming film Journey to Normal: Women of War Come Home. The idea was spawned in 2009, when a female veteran described her rehabilitation struggles to Oprah, and the film has been in production ever since. Journey to Normal is comprised of numerous interviews, both across the U.S. and abroad in Kabul and other outposts.
Though the organization’s main goal lies in getting an audience for its film and advocating for the struggles of women veterans, Journey to Normal has plans beyond the film. The nonprofit will continue to add stories to the site beyond the release of the film and provide a valuable community for women vets returning from war. Journey to Normal also hopes to provide not only video installations at specific venues, such as schools, museums, and libraries, for educational purposes for the general public, but also a variety of outreach programs for employers and schools. The ultimate goal is to create awareness and “bridge the gap between civilian and military life.”
Commercial pilot Aubrey Gladstone also serves as the president of Boca Raton, Florida-based Gladstone Consulting, Inc. During his time as a pilot, Aubrey Gladstone has flown a variety of aircraft, such as a Bell Jet Ranger, Citation ISP, King Air, Piper Cheyenne, and more. Aubrey Gladstone’s love of flying is something that he passed on to his daughter, Brooke Gladstone.
Brooke Gladstone works on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner in the Propulsion Systems Division at Boeing in Charleston, South Carolina, a career decision featured in the local Aspinwall, Pennsylvania, newspaper, The Herald.
A graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with a master’s degree in engineering and materials science, Ms. Gladstone’s passion for flight started in her youth when Aubrey Gladstone began taking her on business trips as co-pilot. After starting to learn to fly at 16, she received her pilot’s license at 17. According to The Herald, Ms. Gladstone enjoys the quiet nature of flying, and with her current career in aerospace, it appears that a passion for the pastime runs in the family.
