I was about 14 years old and hitchhiked from Olathe to Grand Junction to take my first flying

lesson in a Stagger Wing Beechcraft with Eddie Dropula, instructor, in 1943.My next instructor cut

that page out of my log book when I went for my private check ride. He said it didnít look appropriate.

 

I was instructed in Taylorcrafts, Cubs, and Luscombes. I got my private license in 57 hours. I ferried new

Luscombes from Dallas, Texas, factory to Chicago with only 68 hours total time. I started building the Long EZ in 1982.

It took four to five years. My first flight in it was October 7, 1986. I flew the EZ to Oshkosh two timesóin 1987 and 1988.
