I've been flying for 54 years, all at my own expense as I've never flown professionally.
Majored in Astronautical engineering at the Air Force Academy and have a masters degree in Aero/Astro from Purdue.
Spent 7 years on active duty as a spacecraft systems engineer but never flew in the USAF because I did not have 20/20 vision.
Most of my career involved investing in apartment buildings in Southern California.
Wife Marti was a stewardess for Pan Am for 20 years and then with Delta for 15 more. We have no children.
Have owned a Grumman Tiger, American Yankee, Piper Arrow, RV-8A, Zenith 801 and currently an RV-14A.
