    I earned my wings in 1968 and have enjoyed an aviation career in commercial, military, corporate, and general aviation. I have accumulated more than 25,000 hours of total flying time in at least 70 different types of airplanes. I am honored to have Type Ratings in the Boeing 737, 757, 767, DC-9, L382, LRJET, and HS125.

    I was an instructor pilot on C130s in the US Air Force Reserve from 1974-1980. Now, I’m a retired Delta Air Lines Captain where I was also a line check pilot. I also currently am a contract pilot with Orion Aviation. I live in Dahlonega, GA, with my wife, Kari.
