Found this site almost by accident, but it feels like I fell into a good one. Gonna do lots of reading and not much posting for awhile. Started flying in the Army in 1965, both helicopters and fixed wing. Did ATC for the FAA for five years, then transferred into the GADO in 1980, retired from the FSDO in 1994. Now I sit at home and look out the window, read a lot, and have done some Long Distance Motorcycle riding in the Iron Butt Ass'n Glad to be here, and good to listen to the banter of pilots again.
