Calling herself a “Student Pilot” in the aviation industry, Amanda Cuomo has brought an energetic and thriving enthusiasm to her new career. Amanda spent a large part of her adulthood homeschooling and raising her two children. After obtaining a position in Airport Management at the Williston Municipal airport, she was bit by the aviation bug. This is where her love of all things aviation began to blossom. Amanda was able to successfully help re-energize a general aviation airport into a successful aviation asset. Spearheading several fly-ins and airshows, the local aviation community came to know Amanda as a staple of the airport.

Amanda currently holds the position of Social Media and Marketing Manager for Gulfstream Media LLC.
