Default Re: VW Race

Back in the late ‘70’s a friend got me a ‘intro to gliders’ lesson. I soloed and flew about ten hours in two types of gliders. A friend of the flight school owner offered me lessons in powered small aircraft for tee shirt art and painting signs for his new business selling small planes. I ended up living at a small airport in my home built camper for over two years. I got my private pilots license with a ‘high performance’ rating via trading art mechanical work and picking up and dropping off small planes for the business (free flying time!) I still have my license but haven’t flown since the late 80’s but have around 500 hours. It was a fun time and led to meeting Sherrie.
