Biographical Sketch

George C. Prill has had a long and varied career in the aviation industry. His experiences with aviation began, when as a junior at New York University, he worked on Pan American Airways, on their famed “flying boats” in 1942. Prill followed this up doing flight test work for Douglas, and then working with Trans World Airlines (TWA) on engineering the Boeing 307. After he spent time as Director of Safety in South America for Panagra Airways, overseeing the safety of ground stations throughout Brazil, Bolivia, and Peru. He left Panagra for Convair, and became a manger in their European Division, directing the activities of Convair employees throughout Europe.

In 1962, Prill was employed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as an Assistant Administrator, a capacity he served in until he left the FAA in 1965. Prill held a number of other aviation related jobs including Chairman of the Charlottesville, Virginia Airport Commission, Senior Vice President of the National Aeronautic Association and Chairman of the Aerospace Industry Trade Advisory Committee. Prill also served as President of Lockheed International during the 1970s, at a time when Lockheed both sued the U.S. Department of Defense over the C-5A Galaxy contract, and was involved in a foreign bribery scandal in Japan. In 1979, Prill founded his own aviation consulting firm, George C. Prill and Associates, Inc.

In addition to provide consulting services to the airline industry, Prill joined Air T (an air delivery and freight service) in 1982, with which he still serves as a director as of 2010. Prill also was an editorial director for General Publications, Inc., an aviation magazine publisher. When General Publications was acquired by the Cygnus Corporation in 2001, Prill continued with the company as a consultant until 2005. George Prill currently resides in Houston, Texas with his wife Sally Bath-Prill, and remains active in the commercial aviation industry.
