Ride along with renowned aviator, writer, and photographer Greg Brown in his light airplane, the Flying Carpet, as he searches behind clouds for the real America, experiencing countless aerial adventures along the way.
Listen to “Fifty Years Aloft,” Greg’s Flying Carpet Podcast Flight #23
I was recently awarded the FAA’s Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award, for 50 years of safe piloting. It’s mind-boggling to consider how short the history of aviation is, that I should have already flown for over 40% of the entire history of powered flight!
In this episode I reflect on how general aviation flying has changed since I took to the skies in 1972.
Today’s story kicks off a whole series of future episodes sharing many more cockpit adventures from those five decades. Something for you to to look forward to!
Okay, everyone, hop aboard my Flying Carpet, snug up your seatbelts, and prepare for takeoff on today’s adventure, “Fifty Years Aloft!”
