About David Smart
David Smart and his wife Judy live in Northeast Oklahoma along scenic Grand Lake. He is 56 years of age and has been a licensed pilot since 1984. He has been a huge airplane enthusiast since his first flight in 1967 near Wichita, Kansas, in a Cessna 172 at the age of 7. The aircraft was owned by a childhood friend's father. He has flown sparingly over the years, mainly due to expenses, until only recently when he took the plunge and purchased his very first airplane... a vintage 1959 Cessna 172 in December. David and his wife have thoroughly enjoyed every minute they share with their new family addition, Clare Sky.
