About Clyde Butler
Clyde Butler is a career pilot and freelance writer who has contributed multiple articles to Plane and Pilot Magazine, Cessna Flyer and several other non-aviation publications. After learning to fly in 1973 he followed an unusual path to a flying career. His first job in aviation was as a line boy and over the years progressed through A&P mechanic, CFI, charter pilot, corporate pilot, airline pilot and military contract pilot. With over 10,000 hours of flying time, he holds ATP, CFI, CFI-I, MEI, A&P, and IA certificates. He says “I don’t feel like I really fit solely within any specific aviation category. I could probably best be described as an aviation professional in that I continue to exercise the privileges of all my FAA certificates.”
