Hometown – Peoria, IL
- Takeoff or landing?
Takeoff – because it means we are starting something new, up to something, and it’s filled with hope, possibility, promise, the thrill of the unknown, and the knowledge that our actions, effort, and creativity will radically affect the outcome.
- What is your favorite place that you’ve traveled to?
Easter Island – I have never been to any place quite like it. You are almost 2,300 miles from anywhere or anyone else. The island is small with only one town, and there is nothing to do there except relax and enjoy the scenery.
- Do you have any flying experience or would you ever learn to fly?
I have flown actively for the last 30 years. I have been in love with aviation since I was a little boy. My flying experience started at the University of North Dakota and includes flight instruction, fire patrol, traffic reports, commuters, simulator instruction, ground instruction, and airlines.
