Gordon Davis, EAA Chapter 1522 President

The “Spirit of Aviation” is in my DNA. I believe that to be true. For as long as I can remember, I have had a love and passion for all things aviation. Like many young boys, I built plastic model airplanes and hung them from my ceiling.  Becoming a pilot and flying my own plane has been a dream for as long as I can remember; however, it wasn’t until age 47 that I believed this was a dream that could become reality.   After obtaining my pilot certificate in 2005, I purchased and restored an old Piper Cherokee.  Currently I’m building an RV-7a and hoping to be flying it by fall 2017.

It is true, these days aviation is more than a hobby to me; it’s a passion and a way of life.  When I was working toward my pilot’s license, I thought that obtaining the license its self would be the pinnacle of my flying experience.  Little did I know that was only the beginning.  I’ve learned there is much more to aviation than flying an airplane. 

I live in Lexington, Kentucky with my wife Cathy.  We have a daughter and son and 4 grandchildren.  I have worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture for the past 33 years in the Information Technology field.  I am currently serving my second two year term as President of EAA Chapter 1522 in Cynthiana, KY.
