About Barry Benator
Barry was introduced to general aviation in 1977 by one of his clients, who was a retired B-29 pilot. He flew them both to various job sites in Pipers and let Barry fly the plane. That did it—Barry got the bug, and went on to earn his private, instrument, commercial, multi, and CFII. What is unusual about Barry’s path to aviation is that his military service was not in aviation, but rather submarines. He is a retired nuclear submarine officer. His current flying activities include business trips, flying family and friends, and Angel Fights.
