About Larry Stencel
Larry Stencel served a 20+ year career in the US Air Force from Vietnam to just before the first Gulf War. Most of his service was spent supporting flight testing at Edwards AFB, CA. After retirement, he started a second career with an aerospace company that built a large black airplane. For 17 years, he maintained a hangar at the Mojave, CA, airport and was one of the volunteers who helped put the Voyager around the world in 1986. Ultimately winding up in St Augustine, FL, before retiring, he decided to return to his Midwestern roots when he discovered the Wautoma airport on one of his early visits to Airventure. He holds both commercial pilot and A&P ratings and enjoys maintaining his own airplanes at his hangar at Wautoma.
