It is amazing how time flies by! I have been very blessed to have flown as much as I have in the short amount of time that I have been flying professionally. Just after passing 2,000 hours of piston R22 & R44 experience I finally received a call from URS at Ft. Rucker, AL to see if I were still interested in being a flight instructor, instructing for the U.S. Army and other foreign governments. After thinking it over Thanksgiving weekend I called back to Rucker and agreed to come down for the interview.
My flight environment has changed dramatically from the little airport of Gatlinburg, TN (GKT). Now I am training at the Army's busiest airport in the world, being the home of 160+ Bell Jet Rangers and approx 40+ Hueys, 4 King Airs, 6 UH-72 (EC145) Lakota, 3 Chinooks, and 3 Blackhawks for the U.S. Army & Air Force, all of which is in a Class D airspace.
Life is Good! Never take anything for granted. Remember your past.
