Air Group One Staff


Doug English

Wing Leader

A native San Diegan returning to aviation after a long hiatus and joining AG1 in early 2014, he is involved in most of the Wing’s event planning and has served as Safety Officer.

He is also a member of the B-29/B-24 Squadron and tours the country on FIFI, CAF's B-29 Superfortress.

“Coming from a general aviation background” he says, “it is absolutely a dream come true to be involved in preserving aviation history in these WII aircraft.”

I am honored to be working around our professional staff and great volunteers to advance Air Group One and our mission to restore and keep our WWII aviation heritage alive and our aircraft flying safe.
