Aviation Safety 10: 10. Aviation families and rusty pilot dreams, with Flight Outfitters’ Mark Glassmeyer

Mark Glassmeyer has a simple plan for his student pilot son: “We’re gonna talk about aviation for the rest of our lives.” He understands the power of these multi-generational connections because his grandfather, a B-24 pilot in World War II, first introduced him to aviation at age 7 with a trip to Oshkosh. But even with that memorable start and some lessons as a teenager, it would take more than 25 years for him to actually earn his license. In this episode, he explains why shaking the rusty pilot label meant he had to get a little selfish and take control of his life. Other topics include: why aviation can look surprisingly affordable compared to youth sports, how being a pilot helped him overcome a learning disability, and why Flight Outfitters’ tagline is “pilot your own adventure.”
