I am retired, and in addition to the usual retirement activities of working in the yard and garden, I do freelance writing. Thus far, the writing has focused on aviation themes. Airplanes have been a fascination since childhood. Growing up in a rural area with a wide-open view of the sky provided opportunity to observe air traffic from airliners high overhead to low-flying Cessnas and Pipers. Since the overlying airspace was a Military Operations Area, I watched in awe as jet fighters streaked by at near supersonic speeds.
More recently, I’ve developed an interest in world history, specifically the era from WWI through the 1930s.
I’m a member of the American Aviation Historical Society and hold an FAA Advanced Ground Instructor rating.
