About Al Cercone
Al learned to fly in college but took a break after graduation. In the early 80s, he bought a Mooney and flew for business and pleasure for over a decade. In 2007 he discovered the Civil Air Patrol, a wonderful organization of volunteer pilots and ground crew all working to locate downed aircraft, providing disaster relief, aiding the US Air Force, and educating cadets (under age 18) about flying, aerospace, search and rescue, responsibility, discipline, professionalism, communications, and helping others. He is a Captain for the Dallas Composite Squadron.
