About Mark Martin
At sixteen Mark started as a lineman at a local FBO and started flying lessons. By the time he was a sophomore in college, he was flight instructing. Flight instructing didn’t last long because he "landed" a job as a copilot flying the night mail on a Beech 99. He flew the night mail and carried a full college load until his senior year. From there, a stint with a few non-scheds until a thirty one year career with a major airline. Since retiring, Mark was SO lucky to find my way back to the DC-3 and intends to have the last logbook entry he ever makes be on the "Grand Old Lady."
