    Jack with biplane at Reading

    I earned my first private pilot's license at age 28 and went on to acquire an instrument rating. Along the way, I have flown twins and seaplanes. I have owned 2 different aircraft. The first was a Beechcraft Musketeer and the next a high performance retractable Mooney Ranger. I have flown as far north as Newfoundland, south in Mexico to Acapulco, west to California and as far east as Abaco in the Bahamas and St. Pierre - Miquellon in the north atlantic. For info on my family read "Introducing myself" on the home page.
