Starting over 60 years ago tagging along with my mother who was taking lessons to become a private pilot aviation is exhilarating and fun. Neither my mother nor I had ever flown at all in any aircraft when this journey began, and it’s been quite a journey.
After much general aviation flying, I spent time in the USAF as an F-4 combat pilot with 186 missions in Southeast Asia. Following that adventure, I and my family continue to fly regularly and own two aircraft, a restored Cessna T41C and a Cessna 340A. In fact, Lucinda is a pilot and a great ambassador of aviation and particularly general aviation.
All totaled, I have a little over 9,000 hours of flying and have flown all over North, Central and South America.
Simply stated, aviation has made our lives special and it’s time to return the favor and show others what aviation means to others.
