Bob’s fascination for all things that fly began about the age of six when his older brother took him for a flight in a Cherokee 180. Growing up he built plastic model planes, free flight, control line and eventually radio control models. Radio control airplanes lead into full scale. Earning his private pilot license in 1974 he accumulated about 450 flight hours. Marriage, children and career changed his aviation interest back to models.
Eventually, he returned back to full scale by joining EAA and building a Quad City Ultralight Challenger II. When the Sport Pilot & Light-Sport Aircraft rule took effect he became a certified flight instructor and started teaching in a Quicksilver Sport 2S and Quicksilver GT500. He became involved with the Chesapeake Sport Pilot (CSP) flight school and started instructing more seriously. After selling his business he had opportunity to become a partner at CSP and managed to acquire over 2000 hrs of instruction given. He has built and flies a Progressive Aerodyne SeaRey with a few friends.
