Having been a sailor for many years in my early adult years I easily became fascinated with flying gliders as well. It was similar to sailing in so many ways. I have enjoyed the world of aviation ever since having studied, practiced and flown in a wide variety of single and multi-engine aircraft, gliders, classic taildraggers, tricycle gear, high wing, low wing, reciprocating and turbo-props, and jets. The world of aviation is such a progressive, contemporary adventure that there seems to be no end to what I can explore. I have advanced to being an instructor and have flown and towed gliders, guided the commuters as a skywatch pilot and carried banners across the skies.
