Biography

“Upon graduating from ROTC from Stanford University, I found myself in Bartow, Florida, in 1956 for primary flight training in the USAF. Then, in 1958, after two-and-half years flying the T-34, T-28, T-33, F84F and the F100 A and D, I was asked to go home because of an oversupply of pilots.
The next few years I rented a few aircraft to be able to continue my flying.”
