was eat up with jealousy to the point that at the age of 44 he
began flight training.

Once they realized that he
wasn't going to go away they made him chapter secretary, then president.

license and is currently working on an instrument endorsement.

biggest aviation thrill so far is getting to ride in EAA's B-17 Aluminum Overcast.
