I believe that pilots are a special breed of people and so unique that we need to connect to allow for communications and activities that allow us to enjoy all types of flying. I want to make the club a functional entity that focuses on being a communications tool and social gathering to allow us to connect with other pilots.
I am a long time pilot and started flying in the Navy Flying Club in 1975 and got my private license. I also did skydiving to prepare for a corpsman mobile hospital assignment during Vietnam. I started hang gliding in 1978 in Knoxville TN at UT. After that I moved to UT Chattanooga to finish my degree and flew as a local for 3 years. After college I worked in petroleum chemistry in West Texas and got into sailplanes, skydiving and ultralights. I moved to the DFW metroplex in 1989 and have been a member of the NTHPA ever since. I have a hang 4 rating and am starting paragliding training.
In my other life I am a high science teacher and a part time pharmacy technician.
