With a family history steeped in aviation roots, Bill decided it was time to buy an airplane and learn how to fly it. Years ago, he learned to fly an Aeronca Champ off a grass runway. On Oct 30, his solo dreams came true as he flew his Citabria 7GCAA around the pattern at Reid-Hillview Airport. Bill’s wife, a licensed pilot, has also been flying his plane to get current again after years of not flying. We are excited to see what kinds of adventures these two get up to soon!
