I was first introduced to flight in a small plane with the Young Eagles after I turned 8.
Young Eagles is part of the Experimental Aircraft Association and is for kids aged 8-17.
I liked it and thought it was pretty neat. My dad would take me to the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos on the third Saturday of the month. After a few flights in Cessnas, Mooneys, and Beechcraft, Bob Norris took me up in his Fleet Biplane.
That flight had me hooked and there was no turning back!
There are plenty of other great pilots that fly Young Eagles and I love flying with them every month
This is Bruce Norris and his beautiful Cessna 195
Kevin has a super Vans RV-7A.
My buddy Karl had a blast!
Clint is really nice and he has a great Kitfox too!
George Mendoca has a super Kitfox. He's the first pilot to take me up and I'll always remember it.
