Old Photo of Rob acting as Co-pilot
Rob recently passed his FAA Checkride to become a PIC (Captain) of the B-24 bomber. He is now one of the very few in the world that can captain a B-24 bomber.
He had been flying this plane off and on for almost 2 years as a SIC (Second in Command-Copilot) for almost two years.

Rob got both his Single Engine and his multiple Engine Certified Flight Instructor (CFI, MEI) ratings at the end of 2015 in Buffalo NY.
Nice Photo of Jim on the left and me on the right, flying the B-24J
Nice Pic of me in the B-17
I rejoined the Collings Foundation “Wings of Freedom” tour a few weeks ago and I am mostly flying the B-24J, Although, I have flown the B-17 when they need a second pilot to give rides at the tour stops. This time they brought the B-25 as well. I am not sure how long I will be on the tour this time, but I am already signed up to fly the tour when it hits New England later in the summer/fall.
Nice Pic of me flying the B-24J while circling in for a landing at the Reno NV airport. He had to go above 10,000 feet on the way here because of the mountains when we moved the plane from the San Francisco area.
I met Josh at Sun ‘n Fun 2015 and took him up in the Extra 300
This is a nice POV video of a aerobatics ride I gave in the Extra before it had it’s new color scheme. This was out of my first visit to Air American Flight center in Daytona Beach.
At the Tuscaloosa AL Airshow, I met famous you tuber EleventhGorgeous and gave her an aerobatic ride in my Extra. She filmed the ride and just published it on her website. He is the ride.
Otherwise, I have done two air shows now and they went well. Wings Over South Texas airshow is next weekend and then it is a week at Sun ‘N Fun in Lakeland Florida.
