About Bruce McGregor
Bruce McGregor’s dreams of flight began on his grandfather’s back porch, watching Douglas DC-3s and Convair CV-240s landing and departing from nearby Allegheny County Airport (then Pittsburgh’s commercial airport) in the early 1950s. After years of static, control-line and radio-controlled airplane building and flying, he put aside his aviation dreams for college, military service and girls until earning his private pilot license in 1969. Today with Commercial ASEL, ASES, AMEL and Instrument ratings, he is blessed to own and fly his experimental SeaRey and a Cessna P210 Silver Eagle (turboprop). He is doubly blessed with a wife who, after 20 years as an enthusiastic passenger, became a private pilot. She owns and flies a G1000 equipped Cessna 172.
