Master Pilot Award

3 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

My flying buddy just called to tell me that he is getting the Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award next month after 63 years of flying.  I wrote a letter of recommendation for him for that award exactly one year ago.  He told me once that he got his pilot's license a week before he was old enough to get a drivers license in 1954 - He rode a bicycle to the airport to take his PP flight test.  We have had a close and lasting friendship almost that long.  We were both sent to Germany when the Berlin Wall was closed in 1961 - He was Air Force and I was in the Army.  Congratulations to my 80-year-old buddy, who is still flying - Allan Koebel!  EDMO
