About Lee Dalton
Lee learned to fly in northern Ohio back in the days when dual instruction in a Cub cost a whopping $13 an hour. On one of his first solo cross country flights, he landed at New Concord airport and had to get his logbook signed. The fella behind the counter asked if he’d like to have it signed by a pilot who had just set a new speed record across the US in an F8U Crusader. So his first logbook has the notation “Landed New Concord, JH Glenn USMC.” After careers as an elementary school teacher and national park ranger, Lee was finally priced out of flying—like so many other pilots. Now he manages to get his aerial kicks in a SixChuter Legend powered parachute.
