Flying Experience
Commercial / CFI
Building and Flying Info / Your Profession / Other Background Info
Pilot for over fifty years. I have been in the aviation training business for about 46 years in general aviation and airline operations. Own my own aviation business, Golden Age Aviation, Inc. I have written numerous articles for EAA publications and other aviation related publications. I am the co-author of, The Complete Idiots Guide to Sport Flying. I built my 601-XLB for sport and fun and because it is SP eligible, I can continue flying it when I really get old.
I am also a CFI and have obtained a training LODA so I can provide transition and first flight training.

Zodiac Training

I have a LODA allowing me to provide training in my Zodiac for transition, first flight prep, and insurance qualification. Give me a call at 918-840-2200 in the evening central time. My e-mail is: oklahomaaviator@earthlink.net.

I just purchased a 601 XLB, Jabiru 3300, Sensenich Prop and I understand you put together a real good POH. Is it possible for me to get a copy of it?
Thank you,
