As a Pilot for over 50 years, I started flying at age 15 during high school. During college, I earned my Private Pilot Certificate. After college, I entered the Air Force. I flew the F-4 in the USA and Germany, the A-10 in Korea, the OV-10 in Southeast Asia, and taught advanced student pilots in the T-38. After I retired from the Air Force in 1992, I flew the B-747-400 cargo version worldwide as a captain for Atlas Air until I retired in 2006. I live in Arizona. In addition to teaching for Embry-Riddle, I am studying online at Phoenix Seminary for a Master of Divinity degree.
