2020 marked my 52nd year in aviation.  You don't travel through five decades without your share of obstacles and adversities.  I have always enjoyed the challenges and accepted each to allow positive growth for each company, fellow team member as well as for myself. Over the years, airlines have come and gone, jobs changed but it added to the adventure called career.

Stories from a Private Jet Terminal 

is a presentation I was giving at various business luncheons around Honolulu. 

Presentations ran about 20 minutes or so.

I printed out my PowerPoint presentation with notes and posted here.

I will continue to post stories from my years in aviation on this page. Even though this website is dedicated to Antilles Air Boats, I find "my page" to be an opportunity to tell my story.

I encourage other past AAB employees to tell their story on their page as well.

1920 - 2017

Alex was a friend and fellow Rotarian.

While assisting Alex with his second book "Now That's Flyin'!",  we would spend many hours sharing aviation stories. Alex would tell me that I should

write a book and share those stories. When I told him I wasn't interested in writing a book he strongly suggested that I at least document those stories while I can. This website was a way for me to write and share.

Thank you, Alex. Rest well Captain.

During my years as a U.S. Coast Guard Reserve Aviation Petty Officer, living on Cape Cod, I deviated from Aviation in few jobs to pay the bills.
