About Andy Kopetzky
Andy grew up in Chicago and I loved airplanes and audio early on. He built plane models beginning with a P-51 Mustang, then later built a "full size" airplane out of scrap wood and planned to fly himself off the third floor (at age five) but a fistfight with a neighbor kid resulted in its destruction soon afterward. He probably saved Andy's life. He first flew with his dad at age six in an Ercoupe out of Palwaukee (Chicago Executive). He caught the "adult" flying bug later in life and got his private certificate in 2016 at age 64.
