Chris's introduction to flying came through a great friend who happened to own a Cherokee PA28-140 and was a flight instructor. He started training on 12/28/2011, and got his private pilot certificate on 5/12/2012. In June of 2017, he was blessed to purchase N29HL and has flown about 150 hours since, including the addition of an instrument rating. He is a veterinarian by day, and husband and father to the most amazing wife and two beautiful girls alive. Chris is passionate about aviation safety, and using small airplanes for travel and fun.
The sun was low on the horizon as we got to the plane, and the idea of a takeoff over the water after sundown was low on my list of fun things to do with a tired/hungry kid in the right seat. Everything was normal until I got to the oil.
