SOMETHING SURPRISING Before becoming a general aviation pilot, I enjoyed skydiving and parachute jumping. My last jump, however, was a bit off-target, and I decided that being the pilot-in-command was equally enjoyable and, for me, safer.
FLORIDA ISSUE Access to quality public education, I believe is the most important issue facing Florida. The cost of education, especially higher learning, is increasing to the point that it will be difficult to educate tomorrow’s workforce.
