About William Law
William's fascination, and subsequent passion, for aviation was influenced by his father, Kenneth Law. He was an active general aviation pilot who learned to fly in 1947 after leaving the Navy in World War II. William's first flying lesson was in 1957 at age 13. After a 20 year career in corporate aviation, he was hired by the FAA in 1989 as a Rotorcraft Helicopter specialist. Since the majority of his flight time was in fixed wing aircraft, he transitioned over to air carrier operations and served as the Principal Operations Inspector of a regional airline for the next 10 years. In addition to overseeing the training and testing of airline flight crews, he has served on the Flight Operations Evaluation Board (MMEL) for the Canadair CL600 series of aircraft and a FAA Design Test Team Member for Rotorcraft Non-Precision Approach Aids.
