About Art Bridge
Art made his first solo in 1967 with the same CFI who taught his dad in 1941. After college, he joined the Air Force, flew the trainer jets, then an O-2 or Cessna 337 for the Air National Guard over the training areas of Nevada and California. After raising a family and teaching philosophy at a college near Portland, OR, he and his wife built a farm from scratch and went into horse boarding and training. After letting go of the farm, he missed flying, and persuaded his wife to purchase an airplane. He renewed his IFR rating and they flew Angel Flights up and down Oregon and Washington States. He now spends his days writing, walking, playing the cello, learning the clarinet, and learning how to be a granddad whenever he can.
