Graduation from USAF Undergraduate Pilot Training brought the first "working" Air Force assignment - three enjoyable years flying the Lockheed C-141
Starlifter. This aircraft took Chris all over the world, west to Bangkok and the Far East, and eastward to Europe and to Isreal during the Yom Kipur war.
But then, reassignment back to the Air Force Academy, and a chance to pass on to others what he had learned. Four years teaching flying skills to Air Force
cadets imparted a love of teaching.
In the last 30 years, Chris has flown with hundreds of students and in more than 50 different aircraft models, from gliders to
twin-engine aircraft. And he has yet to find an airplane, or a student, that has not brought joy.
