- I have been building, flying, and designing r/c airplanes for 36years.
My main interests are DLG, slope, thermal, scale sailplanes, scale powered, aerotow, 3D, indoor, freeflight, micro, etc.
I am also involved in full scale sailplanes, antique aircraft restoration, aerobatics in both sailplanes and power aircraft.
I have over 10,000hrs in over 150 types of corporate jet, aerobatic aircraft, antique aircraft, vintage sailplane, competition sailplane, towplane, and tailwheel aircraft.
I hold a SSA Silver Badge in full scale soaring. And Level 2 in LSF (?).
My father, Woody ("W1") was the VP of the SSA at one time and competed in full-scale competitive soaring for over 30 years. He holds a soaring "Triple Lenny" Diamond award.
I worked for 15years in the airshow business as a mechanic and custom fabricator for Leo Loudenslager (Bud Light Laser 200, Bede Microjet, and Twin Comanche).
I introduced my aerobatic student, Skip Stewart, to Leo and he is now performing airshows in his modified Prometheus Pitts. Skip is also a fellow r/c pilot.
Other interests include photography, travel, teaching, sailing, windsurfing, standup paddleboard, biking, and moonlit walks on the beach..lol.
