About John Galyon
From an early age, John was fascinated with all things technical, especially electronics and aviation. Enlistment in the Air Force allowed him to combine those interests as an avionics technician. Completing his enlistment, he continued his military career in the reserves and enrolled at the local university to study electrical engineering. He also began flight training to obtain his Private certificate. Over the years, John earned his Instrument rating, Commercial certificate, tailwheel endorsement, CFI rating, and a Master’s degree in Aeronautical Science from Embry-Riddle. Now retired from my civilian and military careers, he hangs out at the local airport when not traveling or cruising with his wife, Marilyn.
