In the 70's I started as crew for the neighbor that moved in with a balloon (there goes the neighborhood). Student Permit was dated Feb.1980. Love to fly LTA, travel, and meet new people. Did the TransAustralian in ' 88 and the Joberg Centenial in ' 86 both were lifetime experiences.Since then I have traveled the US coast to coast and border to border with many different national commercial accounts. I balloon to live and live to balloon! To my fellow aeronuts, raise a cold one, CHEERS !!!
