Flight Experience

 

TT: 800 Hours

 

My first flight was with a friend and his dad when I was in the 8th grade. We flew out of Morristown, NJ. I fell in love with flight and knew I wanted to become a pilot. Money and time rarely share the same space for young aviators but in 1982 I started flight instruction on a grass field in a J3 Piper Cub with the legendary Pete Billows. Kids came along and money and time grew further apart but I got my private ticket after ten years of on and off flying. After earning my private certificate the rest came rather quickly including instrument, commercial and flight instructor. I continued to work full time in our family business and retired in the summer of 2015 finally getting the time to share my love of flying with others.
