Interview By Erik Lundegaard
Q: You’re both pilot and aviation accident attorney. Which came first: aviation or aviation law?
A: I got into aviation in a serendipitous
way a long time ago—probably the late ‘60s. My wife at the time said there was this home show she’d been wanting to go to, and who was I to say no? But she got it wrong; it was an aviation show. And I didn’t know that the little fishbowl that said,
“Put your business card in, win a drawing for free flying lessons,” that everybody in there would get a free lesson. That’s how they get new students. And that’s how I got started.
