About Ed McDonald
Ed flew in a friend's 1953 Cessna 180 from 1970 until he died in 2001. He didn’t fly again until 2006, when he moved to Florida and, at 70 years old, earned his instrument rating. In 2011, he bought a 2010 Cirrus SR22 and started flying cross country. He flew the eastern half of the US from Yellowstone to Minneapolis, Cleveland, Texas, Washington, DC, and many places in between. One of the most satisfying flying experiences was flying medical patients for Angel Flight. His eyesight began to give him problems so he stopped flying in 2018 at 83 years old. He really misses it.
