All he wanted was to fly. A shy, socially awkward teenage pilot with an itchy throttle hand, a Da Vinci-esque knack for sketching, and four generations of aeronautical heritage can’t wait to manifest his passionate aversion to the ground. He sees every hard earned dollar as a tick on the Hobbs meter. Every unencumbered swath of dirt is a potential landing strip, legal or not.
His head literally in the clouds over airplanes and girls, the young Aviator can’t take a hint. Oblivious to the opportunities and history right under his nose, his jaunts over the Cascade Mountains of Washington State to fly 1940s-era taildraggers at Evergreen Field, where he lands in the company of local aviation legend Wally Olson.
Three decades later, the reminiscent Aviator gets 20/20 vision from Dr. Hindsight. This audiobook is packed with adventures that provide a uniquely personal account.
